  1. We are contacting you on behalf of the concerned Turkish citizens about the crisis in Turkey regarding pitbull dogs. The turkish goverment has recently passed a law that allows them to kill Pit Bulls of any breed. The goverment has took immediate action by scheduling 10.000 pitbulls of any breed to be killed outright. No matter how innocent or healthy they are, they will be slaughtered cruelly. A week of preparation has gone through and they have started right away to their inhumanity. We are alarmed by the situation and are reaching out to any help we can get to prevent this massacre. If there is any way you can help us in preventing this atrocious crime from happening , by supporting us or redirecting us to someone who can, we would be grateful. Our time is very limited so we hope to hear from you very soon. Thank you very much.
