Sadly, many pit bulls in the United States never make it out of shelters. Some estimates suggest that about 1 million pitties are euthanized each year, or about 2,800 a day. Misconceptions about the breed lead to lots of dogs just like these who are never even given a chance.
The rescue group is now caring for the puppies and looking for foster homes for their parents. Eventually though, they'll all go to forever homes - hopefully with humans who will be willing to arrange some family reunions.
CORRECTION: A previous version of this article said the dogs were pulled from a shelter in NYC. In fact, they were saved from a shelter in Georgia.
