End Breed Specific Bans

Breed specific legislation laws are expensive to enforce. the state of Ohio found it cost an estimate $17 MILLION dollars to uphold breed specific bans. They target resposible pet owners, causing them to either give up their family pet (causing over crowding in shelters and more animals to be sentenced to death) or follow strict and costly guidelines in order to keep their animal.In Springfield Missouri alone there have been over 1,500 euthenized due to bans since 2006. These bans are ineffective in preventing bites in children and adults. Laws such as these teach our children that it is okay to be hated and killed simply for what you are regardless of your actions as an individual.

      Humans are responsible for the problems pertaining to any breed-restricting legislation. Stop the hate on the dogs. There's no such thing as a bad dog - only an irresponsible, uneducated owner.

      BSL is immoral

      Not all dogs of one breed are bad, good owners of good dogs should not be penalized because their pet happens to be a certain breed.

      We rescued our pit mix days before she was to be euthanized, and she is by far the best dog I've ever known. Dogs like her deserve a chance to live, and responsible dog owners deserve the right to be blessed by such amazing dogs!

      No animal should have to suffer from human mistakes. Animals love us more then we love ourselves but still they are being put down.
