Volunteers to speak against shelter’s euthanasia policy

Ozzie 2

CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) – Volunteers at a local animal shelter plan to speak against the facility’s euthanasia policy Tuesday night.

A group is disputing the euthanasia of a pit bull named Ozzie. The dog was hit by a car this month and found on the side of the road. An animal control officer brought him to Chesapeake Animals Services, but after consulting with four veterinarians, CAS made the decision to put the animal down.

Volunteers feel the facility puts down dogs that are known as aggressive breeds, more than other dogs.
