he Bloemfontein SPCA, arguably the busiest branch with regards to Pitbull attacks, has come out to clear the air about misconceptions surrounding the surrendering of Pitbulls by owners.

No Pit Bull during this volatile and emotional period was booked in with us for safekeeping or boarding. The female Pit Bull, named Cloe, was surrendered to Bloemfontein SPCA, as was the case with many others.”
