She blames "breed specific legislation" which can send a dog to death row for simply having the wrong appearance.
Dog welfare expert Samantha Gaines said: "The RSPCA is opposed to breed specific legislation, which bans four specific types, including the pit bull terrier, because it seriously compromises dog welfare and fails to protect the public.
While some cities and municipalities still have breed specific legislation, as do some states, more states have dropped breed specific legislation over the past few years.
A spokesperson for animal welfare charity the RSPCA said: "We believe that the breed of a dog should not be taken into consideration as we campaign against Breed Specific Legislation, There were 67 of the dangerous dogs destroyed.
"The number of people hoping to travel to Stormont to support a change in the breed specific legislation is vast and we need to get organised to ensure every person and every dog will be safe and properly catered for on the day."
If he's lucky enough to make it onto the adoption row and gets adopted, his savior finds she has also adopted a quandary: Most breed specific legislation, housing regulations, and insurance companies discriminate against any dog with a "pit bull label--possibly the reason why those mixed-breed DNA testing companies don't designate any of the dogs they test as American Pit Bull Terriers.
There is a very strident opposition to "Breed Specific Legislation" by several animal rights groups and activists, who argue that pit bulls are no more dangerous than any other dogs, and should not be singled out or treated different.
There are many different community approaches to preventing dog bites, including breed specific legislation (BSL), laws that ban certain breeds deemed dangerous--most notoriously pit bulls.
Breed Specific Legislation does not take into account anything other than how a dog looks and I would urge anyone who has or may have their dog taken from them in the future to not sign anything, and seek legal advice ASAP.
At least 12 states (California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Maine, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas and Virginia) have statutes that prohibit local municipalities from passing breed specific legislation. In Colorado, the city of Denver recently established a breed ban even though the state statute barred it.
There has been considerable debate--often emotionally charged--about the efficacy of such breed specific legislation (BSL) that fuels sensationalist headlines.
