Montreal Please Reverse Your Decision to Ban Pit Bulls!

This petition had 485,007 supporters

A few weeks ago, we learned of the potential of Montreal banning pit bulls, but we certainly didn't think it was going to pass.  Sadly it has and it is a virtual death sentence to thousands of dogs in the area, but we can stop it.

At a meeting Tuesday, Montreal City Council passed a measure that effectively bans any dog that looks anything similar to that of a pit bull. Dogs in the shelter with this look cannot be adopted. 

Breeds not allowed are American pit bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier and Staffordshire bull terriers.  

For dogs without an owner, the day of the legislation, those dogs will be effectively euthanized.  It is worth noting that rescue groups were able to get some of the dogs at risk out of local shelters in advance of the measure passing.  

This ban needs to be stopped now.  We have the utmost confidence that with your help, and our extensive networking in the animal rescue community, we can stop this.
