Melanie Coy has been a pit bull fancier for 29 years. She's also been involved in obedience and other training and showing animals. Coy became involved in animal legislative issues in the mid-80s to dispel myths about the pit bull breed and fight against breed-specific laws. She advocates responsible dog ownership through training and educational programs, and helps shelters make dogs more adoptable.
The following link is to a story submitted by Gila Todd to the Examiner. I can't add anything to it except that the Caruthersville Humane Society is in need of support from the area that they are unable to get from the very people that should be embracing them.
Please, if you can in anyway assist this group, extend your hand!
