Would You Pay $1 to Fight Stupidity?
Please help the BannedAid coalition in their upcoming legal battle to have Ontario’s Breed Bans over turned. They have retained of Canada’s TOP attorneys, Clayton Ruby, and now they need our help to continue the fight.
This fight is NOT just about “pit bulls” — it affects pedigree dogs of a large variety of breeds, and their owners ability to show, breed, own and love them. Even if you’re not a fan of Pitties, if you’re a fan of the right to own the pedigree breed of your choice, then please make a tiny donation of just one dollar.
That’s all they’re asking for — just donate $1 for every dog you can reach out and touch right now, in honor of all the despairing owners who have had their own beloved dogs ripped away from their sides.
In case you think that issues ‘like this’ can’t or won’t or don’t affect French Bulldogs, please note that rumors abound that if the ban isn’t over turned, it will be expanded to include “All Bull Breeds” (this means Boston BULL Terriers, ‘English’ Bulldogs, French Bulldogs, Bullmastiffs and Bull Terriers), as well as Rotties, Dobes and most of the remaining non banned Mastiff breeds. In other cities with breed bans, Bulldogs, Frenchies and even PUGS have been banned.
It’s time we all put a stop to this madness, and fight back wherever we are. This isn’t about “Pit Bulls” anymore – it’s about a concerted effort, spearheaded by the Animal Rights Groups who are too often called in as ‘experts’ when these laws are being drafted, to put an end to pure bred dog ownership. We can’t afford the luxury anymore of thinking this is about ‘them’, not ‘us’. The future is here, and we are now ‘them’.
Again, just $1 – think about what $1 from every owner or breeder of a purebred dog could accomplish.

They’ve got my support. $1 for each pet I currently have and past pets I’ve loved = $10
My $10.00 is in and I forwarded the link to everyone I know who has or loves dogs
Thanks for posting this, FrogDog. Things are going well for a change and I think we might just make it!
And yeah, it isn’t about ‘pit bulls’ – it never was.
And while doing this, drop cards, and notes to ALL local politicians (City, county, and state if you are able), and remind them that you own dogs, and that you vote. Cards with photos is great, esp if you happen to own Pit Bulls, or other *cough* ‘dangerous’ breeds, also making note said dog(s) are those breeds.
While you may not live in a “BSL Hotspot” right now, all it takes is one close-minded person with passion, and balls to push forward a breed ban, with many other people following blindly behind on. BSL is an easy way for politicians to come in with a bang, and get big attention, and lots of support. While we know it’s a meaningless war, and not solving problems, the general public doesn’t know any better.
If dog owners can be first in line to educate, rather than being blindsided, and in shock as crappy laws pass before their eyes, BSL will be an easier battle to fight. May 2009 be a good year for educating the public, and protecting the pets we love!
