Tell Nevada Legislators to Stop Canine Profiling in Nevada

This petition had 651 supporters

Current Nevada dangerous dog laws allow the government to designate a dog as dangerous or vicious without a hearing or notification to the owner. The current law has no due process protections for pet owners or pets.

AB 324, introduced by Assemblyman Hambrick, would put due process protections in place. It would also prohibit canine profiling in Nevada. Dogs should be judged by their behavior not their appearance.

Studies in the United Kingdom and Spain have shown that breed discriminatory laws are ineffective. According to economist John Dunham and Associates, breed discriminatory laws  are also extremely expensive to enforce.

Urge Nevada legislators to support AB 324.
