Our President/CEO Deirdre ‘Little Darling’ Franklin will be giving a presentation about BSL/BDL before announcing her friend, Shorty Rossi of Pit Boss. This will be a 30 minute presentation that you don’t want to miss!
1:45PM: What is BSL and How Can You Help End Breed Discrimination?
Deirdre ‘Little Darling’ Franklin, CEO/President of Pinups for Pitbulls, Inc.
Breed-specific legislation (BSL) refers to laws that target dogs based on how they look rather than their actions. Hundreds of U.S. cities have already enacted BSL, and more cities adopt it every year. Many cities and counties—plus Marine Corps and Army bases—have banned select breeds altogether. Currently, BSL most often focuses on Pit Bull types (dogs that have “Pit Bull characteristics”), but some cities also target Rottweilers, German Shepherds, Doberman Pinchers, American Bull Dogs, Bull Terriers, Mastiffs, Dalmatians, Chows and other large breeds and mixes of the targeted breeds. National animal advocate Deirdre ‘Little Darling’ Franklin, will discuss BSL, why BSL doesn’t work, and how you can help prevent breed discrimination.
