Officials in Ridgely, MD are considering a bill requiring “certain breeds of dogs deemed inherently dangerous” be registered with the town’s police department.
Please send your POLITE, RESPECTFUL and INFORMATIVE opposition to breed specific legislation to the Ridgely officials listed below. Please include suggestions and alternatives for the city’s consideration, and encourage officials to seek a breed-neutral ordinance that holds irresponsible dog owners to a higher accountability rather than targeting specific breeds of dogs.

Ridgely officials are considering a bill requiring certain breeds of dogs deemed inherently dangerous be registered with the town’s police department.
Ridgely Police Chief Gary Foster discussed his reasons for the measure during the town commissioners meeting Monday, saying he has nothing against dogs, but when one becomes aggressive, it creates a safety concern.
