Petitioning Florida Senate Senator Arthenia L. Joyner and 5 others

End Breed Specific Legislation

The law allows for the "Humane destruction of the pit bull dog by order of a court of competent jurisdiction."

Why should pit bulls be killed or put out in Miami?

In recent years, throughout Florida and the United States, there has been rapid and consistent violence against pit bulls based on a stereotype that they are dangerous. Tell Miami Dade to stop bullying this breed, breathing life to stereotypes and propagating the violence we see against pit bulls!
