    Ever wonder if the advocates who are working hard to stop Breed Specific Legislation are making an impact?
    The answer is YES they are!
    YOU are making a difference.
    Here’s the proof:

    Since January 2012, Breed Specific Legislation is consistently being repealed or rejected more than it is being passed or considered.

    That’s something to take note of and celebrate!

    According to our exhaustive research, conducted and updated every month, here’s the breakdown:


    Since January 2012 BSL is being considered, either actively or the issue remains unresolved, in approximately 33 locations in the United States. Here is a sampling of locations in that category:

    • -Waterford, MI
    Since January 2012 BSL has been preempted in at least 3 states:
    Nevada
    Connecticut
    Massachusetts
    This brings the total to 15 for states with BSL preemptions in place. More are pending.

    In case you weren’t counting, that’s:
    49 locations with BSL passed or being considered
    76 locations with BSL rejected, repealed, preempted


    See? We told you that you’re doing great work! Keep it up. Discriminatory, ineffective laws are being replaced with fair, humane, and effective laws: one town, one county, one state at a time.

    Right on!

    I see my county made the list of at least considering it.That's a major hurdle here.
    I can guarantee that BSL is aimed squarely at Pitt-bull owners here.It's "the" trendy dog to have for the black sock-flat biller/Macho crowd in Riverside county.
    I can only hope they repeal BSL here and take an active stance on bad owners rather than a dogs breed.
    Progress....good!
