Organizational positions regarding breed restrictions

  • American Bar Association
    In August 2012, the American Bar Association passed Resolution 100 calling for all state, territorial and local legislative bodies and governmental agencies to repeal any breed-specific provisions and to adopt comprehensive breed-neutral dangerous-dog/reckless-owner laws that ensure due process protections for owners, encourage responsible pet ownership and focus on the behavior of both dog owners and dogs.
  • American Veterinary Medical Association
    This article recommends encouraging responsible pet ownership rather than banning breeds.
  • Platte Institute for Economic Research
    This article declares that pit bull bans are a waste of tax dollars.
  • U.S. Department of Justice
    The U.S. Department of Justice has ruled against breed restrictions for service animals. This article provides more information.
