Nikki Reed Needs Your Help Saving Pit Bulls in Louisiana

Nikki Reed Needs Your Help Saving Pit Bulls in Louisiana

Nikki Reed runs some errands looking as chic as always on Monday afternoon (November 24) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

That same day, the 26-year-old actress wrote a plea for pit bulls on her Instagram page, along with a cute pic of her giving her adopted pit bull a kiss.

“URGENT!!! PLEASE READ IMMEDIATELY!!! As a former owner of pit bulls and current adoptive mom of an incredibly sweet pit bull, as well as someone who grew up around both pit bulls and Rottweilers, I am both enraged and devastated to learn about the proposed “vicious dog ban” or Breed Specific Law in Louisiana,” Nikki captioned her photo. “I have worked with and rehabilitated many of these dogs in the past, and though there are examples of aggressive behaviors among these breeds, there are examples of aggressive behaviors among ALL breeds. We absolutely CANNOT make sweeping generalizations like this, stereotyping animals straight to their deaths. It is a barbaric approach, it is egregiously inhumane, and it makes me heartsick beyond words. This is NOT a solution to a problem. This is a mass murder of innocent life; dogs being sentenced to die without the chance to prove the worth of their beautiful souls.”

Nikki also included a link where you can help the cause.

Nikki Reed’s Instagram Post on Pit Bulls

“URGENT!!! PLEASE READ IMMEDIATELY!!! More information regarding what I’m about to say can be found here: http://petitions.moveon.org/sign/save-zeus?source=s.fwd&r_by=11755614 As a former owner of pit bulls and current adoptive mom of an incredibly sweet pit bull, as well as someone who grew up around both pit bulls and Rottweilers, I am both enraged and devastated to learn about the proposed “vicious dog ban” or Breed Specific Law in Louisiana.

This is a mass murder of innocent life; dogs being sentenced to die without the chance to prove the worth of their beautiful souls. These are peoples’ pets, their family members, their best friends. I refuse to sit idly and allow this to happen and I’m asking you to join me in this fight RIGHT NOW. Speak up, use your voice, tell the authorities in Moreauville that, regardless of where you live, you will not stand for this breed specific genocide. Don’t let them set a precedent that could make its way to your town next. Thank you!”
