Dog Breed-Specific Legislation: Infographic

According to a survey commissioned by Best Friends Animal Society, 84% of Americans believe people should be allowed to have any breed of dog they choose.

Dogs are individuals, with individual temperaments and behaviors that are not based on what they look like. Dog breed-specific legislation is wrong, and breed ban laws do not keep the public safer.

In fact, legislation that targets certain dog breeds has been proven to be ineffective when it comes to reducing dog-bite incidents. Breed-specific legislation also infringes on people’s basic rights and is expensive to enforce.

Give Snickers a bright future

When you sponsor an animal like Snickers, or any of the animals here at Best Friends, you’re providing them with the love, care, and healing they need for a bright future.

Be our Best Friend

Best Friends Animal Society is working with you to save the lives of cats and dogs all across the country, giving pets second chances and happy homes.

Just a few short years ago, cats and dogs were killed in staggering numbers in this country simply because shelters didn't have the community support or the resources to save their lives. That number is now less that half a million per year, but there's still work to do to ensure a bright future for every dog and cat in America.

Best Friends operates the nation's largest no-kill sanctuary for companion animals and is committed to saving the lives of homeless pets by working with shelters and passionate people like you. Together, we will bring the whole country to no-kill in 2025. Together, we will Save Them All.
