CLAW Working to End County Pit Bull Ban
Bowie CLAW recently launched a new initiative, advocating for an end to the Prince George's County Pit Bull Ban. This county law is inhumane, leading to the confiscation and death of many innocent dogs; ineffective in improving public safety; unnecessary, given existing and adequate breed-neutral vicious animal laws; and very costly. All major animal-related organizations, the White House, and even the County's own specially-commissioned Vicious Animal Legislation Task Force of 2002 have come out against such breed-specific legislation.
To ensure the repeal of the law, CLAW is networking with PG County Councilmembers, conducting letter writing campaigns to the PG County Council, providing template letters for the public to edit and send to their representatives, and coordinating with other like-minded animal welfare organizations.
