Because of an archaic exemption in state law, Miami-Dade County is the only county in the entire state permitted to engage in canine profiling. Florida state legislators Representative Carlos Trujillo and Senator Jim Norman are leading an effort, with the help of Best Friends, to right this injustice and to repeal the portion of the Florida statute that allows Miami-Dade to kill dogs simply because of their appearance. No other county in Florida is allowed such unmitigated power over people's pets.
Last year, with help from you and other dog lovers in Florida, we were able to repeal the automatic dangerous dog classification that discriminated against any dog rescued in a dogfighting bust. Now it is time to put an end to ALL canine discrimination in Florida and make the Sunshine State a model of humane public policy.
Despite being over 20 years old, Miami's canine profiling still causes the needless, senseless and unjustified confiscation and killing of hundreds of innocent dogs every year, proving that breed discrimination does not make communities safer, and is impossible to enforce. It's also a waste of tax dollars. Nowhere else in Florida can certain breeds of dogs be summarily killed simply because of their appearance.
To correct this injustice, we need your help. Please reach out to your state legislator and urge him/her to support the repeal of Miami's archaic and inhumane breed-discriminatory legislation (BDL). If you live in Miami, please ask your state legislators, in both the House and Senate, to co-sponsor the repeal bill that will remove Miami-Dade County's exemption from the statewide BDL prohibition.
Your legislator needs to hear directly from you that you want to live in and be part of a safe, humane community and state. Tell your legislator that this problem has an easy solution: Support HB 997 and SB 1322.
By repealing the canine profiling provision, Miami-Dade will have the opportunity to embrace proven methods for building a safer, more humane community. We need YOU to help Best Friends save pets.
