Update 7/30/13 -Today the motion was filed to STOP Clay from enforcing this! This is the first legal challenge to BSL in Alabama EVER! We're making history! http://blog.al.com/spotnews/2013/07/motion_for_injunction_filed_to.html


Citizens, advocates & bully breed enthusiasts are demanding the repeal of the breed specific ordinance passed on June 3rd, 2013 in Clay, AL. Stand up for this breed by donating any amount to overturn this law. Our plan is to file for an injunction before the 60 day deadline of August 4th. We've been assured by several local attorneys that this IS a winnable case, now we need the money to make it happen. When this law is struck down, all the other local city's BSL ordinances will fall like dominoes right behind it. We shall prevail in the defense of our beloved family members!

Let's make Alabama BSL a thing of the past together!

You may think Clay's ordinance doesn't affect you, BUT IT DOES! Almost EVERY local ordinance is the SAME. If Clay falls, THEY ALL WILL FALL. Center Point, Irondale, Gardendale, Fultondale..

A win will set legal precedent upon which all other ordinances can be litigated or ruled unlawful. THIS IS IMPORTANT TO ALL DOG LOVERS!

Please do not forget that Clay wants to add ELEVEN more breeds to this list. Even if you don't have a pit bull type dog, YOURS could be next!

Today's Hearing HAS BEEN POSTPONED. Clay has agreed NOT to enforce the current ordinance and will enter negotiations for a more acceptable ordinance. Please understand that while this is a victory, it is not the end and nothing is final. Also, please remember that the proverbial meter is running and legal fees continue to mount. We all need to continue to donate & share the fundraiser link. We would not be where we are without the 3 fabulous attorneys we have and they don't come cheap. I am SO very happy to bring you all this news.. Hearing this made my day! .
