All animal lovers in the state of Georgia: Stop breed specific legislation in Georgia

    1. Petition by

      Stubby's Heroes

There is a member of the House of Representatives that was ready to propose naming "Pit Bulls" Dangerous Dogs in the state of Georgia. Some of the requirements for this type of law - Breed Specific Legislation - could include registrations for our dogs, expensive personal injury insurance, pricey fencing, and could end up with the requirement for our dogs to wear mandatory muzzles when out in public, and even mandatory sterilization, as some laws require.

All of this is Breed Specific Legislation. We advocates are vehemently opposed to any type of breed specific legislation, and urge you to sign the petition to send a message to our policy makers that we are voters and responsible caretakers, and that we are opposed to BSL. BSL does not target the core issue, but rather, impacts responsible owners such as ourselves.

      Outlawing a breed of dog is a discriminatory act and it will not stop the mistreatment of these animals. All it will do is cause outrage.

      This is important to me because i believe the individuals owning the animals are the root of the issue, not the breed. My pups are all sweet and love to be cuddled.

      You can't simply label a dog based on breed. It is the same thought process as racial profiling. Please begin to look at owners and not the dogs.
