80% of pitbulls and pitbull mixes that get either picked up or surrendered to the animal shelter get euthanized. That number is unacceptably high, but the problem isn't the shelter itself- trust me, they dont like it anymore than anyone else does.

The problem is totally irresposible breeding, neglect/abuse and poor training. Also the misguided notion that pitbulls are an exceptionally dangerous breed of dog. Pitbulls aren't the problem, people are.

Of course fostering, adopting and loving a dog is the best way to save him or her, but many of us are already full-up on dogs, or are responsible enough to know we are not ready for one at this point in our lives. There's other ways to help this beautiful breed, including a very fun event- A Mixer at Fox & the Hound that benefits Saving Grace Pitbull Rescue that is January 21st from 6:30p to 8:30.
