BSL Issues needing our attention

There are currently a lot of issues that need our continued attention. In an effort to not let any of them “fall of our radar,” below is a listing of cities currently considering breed specific legislation, along with contact information for city officials.

Please send your POLITE AND RESPECTFUL opposition to BSL, as well as educational materials and viable alternatives to breed specific laws. I cannot stress enough how very important it is to maintain respectful and polite communications with city officials!!

Jackson, Mississippi
A proposed ordinance to amend Article IV, Section 18-101 (dangerous and potentially dangerous dogs) is currently pending before the Planning Committee. According to the council agenda, the ordinance would “ban breeds of dogs from the City of Jackson,” as well as limit the number of dogs per household.

Molalla, Oregon
In response to a Christmas day “pit bull” attack, Molalla Mayor John Atkins is considering whether the city should adopt a pit bull ordinance or, in the alternative, adopt a generic ordinance related to dangerous animals. Please encourage the city officials to pursue an ordinance that holds irresponsible owners accountable for the actions of their dogs and does not single out specific breeds.
