Florida, We Need You! Mark Buehrle Shares How To Take Action And Help Save Dogs


Because of an archaic exemption in the state law, Floridas Miami-Dade County is the only county in the entire state permitted to engage in canine profiling, specifically when it comes to pit-bull-type dogs. Best Friends, working with local lawmakers, has introduced a law to right this injustice.

Last year, Florida dog lovers rose to the occasion by helping us repeal the automatic dangerous dog classification that discriminated against any dog rescued from dog fighting. If you live in Florida, please contact your state legislators (via the link below) and ask them to support the repeal bill (HB 997/SB 1322) that will remove Miami-Dade Countys exemption from the statewide breed-discriminatory legislation prohibition.

Time is short and your legislator needs to hear from you as soon as possible. Please share the video, join the fight to repeal the canine-profiling provision, and give Miami-Dade County the opportunity to embrace proven methods for building a safer, more humane community. We need YOU to help Best Friends save pets.

Best Friends Animal Society

Best Friends is a nonprofit organization building no-kill programs and partnerships nationwide, all coordinated from our Kanab, Utah headquarters - the largest no-kill sanctuary for homeless companion animals.

At the core of our work is the dream that one day kindness will replace cruelty, and animals will no longer be destroyed because they are unwanted or imperfect. Spaying and neutering will be the rule for all pets and adoption from local animal shelters and rescues will be the first option for everyone. Those same shelters and rescues will have the knowledge and resources to help rehabilitate special-needs animals and find the right family for every animal.
