Create Realistic Dog Legislation, Don\'t Ban Breeds

47 Signatures Goal: 100

Recent legislation banning specific breeds of dogs (also called BSL) has dog owners and dog lovers confused and fearful. In the rescue community, too many of us have seen dogs abused, over-bred, and ignored and these unsocialized dogs, of varying breeds, often end up homeless and on our doorstep. The only way to control the cat and dog population and to create real change in ownership is to legislate real incentives for spaying and neutering and real disincentives for backyard breeders and puppy mills. Banning breeds does not prevent unsocialized dogs and unsocialized dogs are the ones that bite. We, the undersigned, ask that you, the California State Senate, stop seeking breed specific language and instead focus on legislation that will actual create change: high penalties for backyard breeders and people who do not spay/neuter their dogs and more funding for shelters and adoption agencies to help train and evaluate dogs before placing them. Breed Specific Language will not prevent tragedy while an educated public will absolutely create sweeping change. Stop Breed Specific Language and Let\'s Work Together To Legislate REAL CHANGE!
