WHY BREED SPECIFIC LEGISLATION (BSL) IS NOT THE ANSWER:
BSL has failed to improve safety.
BSL has not been effective in decreasing dog bites or increasing public safety.
Thousands of Pit Bull -looking dogs have been killed by animal control for no reason other than appearance.
Bites by other types of dogs now exceed the number of bites by Pit Bull types.
Innocent people continue to be threatened, bitten, traumatized, disfigured, and killed—by non-targeted breeds and types of dogs.
Innocent dogs are killed because they look a certain way.
Millions of dollars are wasted and animal control resources stretched thin in order to kill dogs and not save people.
Abusive and irresponsible owners carry on with business as usual.
Breed-specific legislation DOES not WORK and makes victims of us all.
