Help Protect Maryland Dogs - Maryland Court Finds Pit Bulls are 'Inherently Dangerous' - This Decision Hurts Both People and Dogs


The following letter is from Wayne Pacelle, Humane Society of the United States.

Dear Friend,
As you may have heard, the Maryland Court of Appeals just issued an opinion declaring that all pit bull-type dogs are "inherently dangerous" potentially making owners, landlords, veterinarians, kennels, animal shelters, rescue groups, and anyone in custody of a dog automatically liable, regardless of whether they know a dog actually poses a threat. This decision hurts both people and dogs, and could force thousands of law-abiding dog owners to choose between their homes and their beloved pets.

Please call Governor O'Malley at 410-974-3901 to urge him to pass legislation to help overturn this breed-specific rule during the special session. And don't forget to send a follow-up message.

Sincerely,
Wayne Pacelle, President & CEO

Act Now
