Pure Breed Preservation

HELP PRESERVE
NUMERICALLY THREATENED BREEDS

As I have learned more about the forces which threaten our animal companions I have become very passionate about promoting preservation of numerically threatened breed groups.

According to the Rare Breed Survival Trust, one breed of farm animal is going extinct each MONTH worldwide. This is due to many factors, but is leading to a dangerous reduction in bio-diversity. Many good people are now working to save these important animal breeds for future generations.

The links below will help interested parties understand the many reasons why preservation is so important. I hope to encourage others to join in this process, and not leave it to "someone else" to save these wonderful threatened animal and bird breeds.

We can all take small steps to help preserve these worthy animals.

NUMERICALLY THREATENED
"Numerically threatened" means that a breed population has been reduced to such a low number of reproducing animals, that there is a fear of that breed reaching a population point from which it cannot be recovered.

Main threats to our heritage breeds are: loss of rural lifestyle, PETA/HSUS action focused on destroying pet ownership in general and in wiping out specific breeds in particular, lack of opportunity for the general public to learn about and appreciate these breeds.

Today there is a boom in "urban chicken keeping", which is helping educate about rare and heritage chicken breeds. Take a look around this page and see if perhaps you could help one of these threatened breeds.

ARE PIT BULLS
A "NUMERICALLY THREATENED" BREED?


Absolutely. While "pit bulls" continue to be the reported as the highest numerically represented breed in shelters and rescues, specimens of phenotypical and genotypical purity, as well as all important "type" are surprisingly rare.

Added to this, concern for the number of "purebred" pit bulls being destroyed due to lack of homes has caused many ethical breeders to reduce their breeding programs. Even more troubling is the contamination of a breed by "fad bred" animals (think "American Bullies" and other dogs which do not meet the traditional American pit bull standard in temperament or type) produced by those with a short term interest in the animals motivated by monetary gain.

Lack of good dogs being bred and lack of appropriate available homes for breeders to place dogs into continues to threaten the real American pit bull.
