Breed Specific Legislation...Make Your Voice Heard

 |  Jan 6th 2009  |   7 Contributions


There's a movement of citizens inspired by the presidential campaign who are now submitting ideas for how they think the Obama administration should change America. It's called "Ideas for Change in America."

The top 10 ideas are going to be presented on Inauguration Day and will be supported by a national lobbying campaign.

Ban Breed Specific Legislation

It is unfair legislation and stereotypes these breeds as violent and vicious animals. Being an owner of 3 American Pit Bull Terriers, this infuriates me. Any dog can be vicious if the owners aren't responsible. We should crack down on negligent and cruel owners and try to get to the real root of the problem-- the humans, and stop punishing innocent animals who have no voice and the owners that love them.

If you would like to make your voice heard go to Ideas for Changing America to vote. Over 800 votes are still needed to get this topic into the top 10 which would allow it to be presented in Washington, DC.

There are also other animal welfare issues so take a look around the site while you're there.
