Dr. Lou’s Guitar Raffle For Rescues

What is it?

How can you get involved?

Dr. Lou’s Guitar Raffle For Rescues is the only guitar raffle to save rescue dogs in the state of Maine. Mixing two of Dr. Lou’s favorite things… Dogs and Guitars.

The Reality of the specific number of pit bulls euthanized each year by state is not readily available. However, several sources offer insights into the broader context of pit bull euthanasia in the United States, which can help understand the dramatic scale of the issue.
Why does Dr. Lou feel this fundraising for Pittie Posse Rescue & Sanctuary is necessary?
According to Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers, nearly one million pit bulls are killed yearly due to misinformation surrounding the breed.
The American Pit Bull Foundation estimates about 1,200 pit bull type dogs are still euthanized daily based on reporting and non-reporting rescues and shelters.
Petpedia notes that around 800,000 Pit Bull-type dogs are believed to be euthanized in shelters every year, which accounts for about 40% of all dogs killed in animal shelters.
Kennel to Couch mentions that studies estimate up to 1 million pits are euthanized per year, or 2,800 per day, with some estimates being up to double that number.
These statistics highlight the significant issue of pit bull euthanasia in the United States. The high euthanasia rates are attributed to factors such as breed-specific legislation, the breed’s unwarranted reputation, and misidentification based on appearance, leading to longer stays in shelters and a lower rate of adoption
