|For Dog Owners|
Supporting the human-canine bond in your community, from providing pet owners with assistance to establishing fair and non-discriminatory practices in your town, is crucial. Our resources are designed to support you in your work to create safe, humane communities for all pets and people.
We encourage you to explore each section in depth.
Building Safe Communities: Find the research that explores the foundation of safe, humane communities, where dogs are treated as individuals and pet owners are empowered to be responsible. Humane communities are safer communities for people and pets!
Breed Specific Legislation: Experts have proven that Breed Specific Legislation does NOT make communities safer for people or pets. It is costly, ineffective and undermines the human-canine bond. Learn more about why this approach has been proven to fail.
Each section offers handouts, videos, and downloadable e-booklets for easy learning and sharing. All of our handouts are available for distribution. Please feel free to utilize them at you shelters or public events.
