Breed Specific Legislation Banned!

Tremendous progress achieved in the fight to abolish Gas Chambers & Dog Breed Discrimination in the State of Massachusetts!

MA Governor, Deval Patrick, just signed off on amendments to “Bill S.2192 │ An Act further regulating animal control” as new laws.
Section 174A.
A dog or cat whose killing is authorized under this chapter shall be euthanized ONLY by the administration of barbiturates in a manner deemed acceptable
by the American Veterinary Medical Association Guidelines on Euthanasia or as allowed by in section 151A.
Section 157. (a) (vii)
No order shall be issued directing that a dog deemed dangerous be removed from the town or
city in which the owner of such dog resides. No city or town shall regulate dogs in a manner that is SPECIFIC TO BREED.
Bill S.2192

That is good news! I have known some "dangerous" dogs that have been very sweet. And no more gas chambers is good. Hopefully some day it will be illegal to kill any healthy or treatable animal.
