'Animal Cops' sign now

The television segment Animal Cops shown on the popular nationally cable syndicated channel called Animal Planet is poisoning peoples image of the American Pit Bull Terrier (APBT). This program is shown on cable networks nationwide reaching millions of homes spreading its misinformation and misunderstanding of the breed. The majority of Animal Cops segments show the end product of abusive, irresponsible, and downright illegal APBT owners. This has led to the program adopting an overall opinion that all APBTs are bad. Contrast this with another popular program on Animal Planet called Animal Precinct. The APBT breed is described for its good qualities separate from any bad qualities that may be brought out by abusive and irresponsible APBT owners.

We must speak for the APBT since they cannot. Programs like Animal Cops does not separate the breed from the bad owner. It seems the program is being aired for ratings more than anything else. Fight for our dogs!! Sign below to get this program taken off the air.

    My thoughts are that this show makes the people that live in Detroit , look worse than the APBT. They seem to be mostly low-life trash......The humane society in this city, seems to know nothing about different breeds. They really need to get in touch , w

    I have always praised ANimal Planet for giving voice to those who cannot speak for themselves. Why are pit bulls being silenced by Animal Planet? Do you not realize that you are giving credance to all those who are fearful of pit bulls without giving the

    Im glad to see this petition I have wanted to do the same, for some time. The same show did a 2 hour special on msnbc about 7 months back. It was a total disgrace to the breed. It seems as some of the things they do on tv are illegal, as far as taken two

    This show is giving us responsible dog owners a bad name. It's people like "Animal Cops" that make the general public fear pitbulls. If they'd just take a few minutes to get to know the dogs that us responsible dog owners have they will see what loving, c
