Breed-Specific Legislation Map

This map gives you a comprehensive look at breed-specific legislation across the United States. 


How to use the map:

  • Data is clustered in pie charts by location. Zoom in or click on a pie chart to uncluster the data.
  • Click on an individual pin to view detailed information about that location’s BSL history.
  • Use the map legend on the left to filter the data points based current BSL outcome.
  • Use the search function to quickly find details about a location.
