Group Description

The "Pit Bull" Co-op has been formed by and for responsible "pit bull" owners (American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, etc) in order to maintain a 'quality of life' for our dogs in the face of Bill 132. To begin, the co-op members will be meeting with their pit bulls as well as supporters and their non-pit bull type dogs for leashed and muzzled dog walks. We will also investigate ways of providing legal fenced or enclosed areas, in order to more properly socialize and exercise our dogs.

While the primary function of the Co-op will be to provide socialization for dogs and owners on a not-for-profit basis, the Co-op recognizes that optimally, this will require Bill 132 to be disposed of in favor of intelligent non-breed specific legislation. To this end, the Co-op recognizes the need to support organizations such as "Banned Aid," in their legal struggle to have this bill declared un-constitutional. The Co-op may wish to organize fundraisers in order to help in this fight. Although the "Pit Bull" Co-op is Toronto based, we would like to encourage other groups in Ontario to form their own groups. We would then have provincial Liaisons, for sharing of information, ideas, emotional support, and of course political actions.

The Co-op recognizes the difficulty in arranging meetings for large groups of people and dogs, however, smaller groups can meet more often - maintain networking, allowing for all the dogs and people to meet one another, and when we do come together for a large dog walk or protest march, all of our dogs will be more comfortable with one another.
