Help end murder because of breed specific legislation law

This petition had 589 supporters


Following the horrific execution of a beautiful dog called Francis an 18 month old puppy taken to Battersea dogs home, I urge you to sign this petition to have this ridiculous and outdate law changed immediately.

Dispite a petition signed by over 30,000 people  https://www.change.org/p/francis-life-hangs-in-the-balance-even-though-a-reputable-legal-firm-has-said-they-can-help-save-him and support from a legal firm who believed they could help, this poor dog was STILL destroyed because he came under the catagory of a dangerous breed in the breed specific legislation section of the dangerous dogs act 1991 and therefore it was against the law for Battersea to rehome him. https://www.change.org/p/francis-life-hangs-in-the-balance-even-though-a-reputable-legal-firm-has-said-they-can-help-save-him/u/17412524

Please if your able also write to your local MP, you can find them by entering your postcode in the link provided  http://www.parliament.uk/mps-lords-and-offices/mps/ and using the template provided by Battersea included in the statement from them above.

 

We in Britain pride ourselves on our social living and the defense of those penalize for their physicality or nationality. Why then is this ignored with animals who are the innocent victims of their lineage?

We need to let the government know that we are not going to let this go away, we will not forget and shrug this off.

DOG ARE NOT BAD, OWNERS ARE.

Please show your support for the law to be changed by signing this petition which I intend to send to a  representative for All-Party Parliamentary Group for Animal Welfare once we have enough signitures http://www.apgaw.org/

Let's use the voice we are afforded and make something happen.
