Who's Against BSL?

Several animal welfare organizations have issued formal position statements AGAINST breed specific legislation.  These organizations realize that BSL does not target the true problem of irresponsible dog ownership and, therefore, it is an ineffective method of discriminatory animal control.  Below are just a few of these organizations:
National Animal Control Association

Humane Associations of Georgia, Wisconsin, Ottowa, Idaho

Association of Pet Dog Trainers

American Kennel Club

Humane Society of the United States

American Veterinary Medical Association

National Association of Dog Obedience Instructors

Canadian Kennel Club

National Animal Interest Alliance

American Animal Hospital Association

International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants

California Veterinary Medical Association

Colorado Veterinary Medical Association

Texas Veterinary Medical Association

Louisiana Veterinary Medical Association

Chicago Veterinary Medical Association

American Humane

Maryland Veterinary Medical Association

New York State Veterinary Medical Association

American Temperament Test Society

American Dog Owner’s Association
