    Please take a minute to check it out and if you can, donate. Emily is my best friend and a Ontario resident with a pit bull of her own. Em is dedicated to overturning BSL in Ontario and will NOT back down until it is done....... I cannot think of a more worthy cause!

    Desperate Times Call for Desperate Measures!

    Ontario pit bull rescuers Emily Ugarenko and Thomas Trimbee are through "splitting hairs" over fundraising.
    With legal bills for the Banned Aid Coalition mounting, and their beloved dog rescue, Advocates For The Underdog inundated with desperado dogs, prohibited pups and in "the red" constantly, due to vet and transport bills, it was time for something BIG and Bold and....BALD!! (or hopefully will be!)
    THE GOAL: o raise $15,000 by November 27th, 2007 (the 2nd anniversary of the last oit bull type puppy allowed to be born and legally exist in this god-forsaken Province).
    In the event the GOAL is met, Emily and Thomas will shave their heads BALD!
    The "pit bull ban" has been in effect in Ontario, Canada since August 29th, 2005. Dogs all over the Province are being euthanized for no good reason other than their appearance. Dog bites/attacks have not decreased (for ANY breed). Innocent dogs and good owners are being discriminated against based solely on the canine's physical appearance-sound like prejudice? It is. We want effective laws and enforcement for responsible dog/pet ownership.
    Attorney Michael Bryant and the Ontario Liberals enacted a poorly researched, widely opposed. and ineffective law to try and capitalize on media-provoked hysteria.
    Well, let's see if we can't pull a stunt of out own and capitalize on some of the media hype!!

    I'm sorry. I don't understand what the 15K is for. Are they hiring an attorney?

    They HAVE an attorney and have been fighting the ban since it went into effect. This group is part of Banned Aid (http://www.bannedaid.com/ or http://www.brok.ca/) and the money goes towards the legal costs which are now over a million dollars. They need to keep fighting and the next court date is in October so all of your support helps!
