Owners, Breeders and Dogs Against Breed Discrimination
What we're all about. . .
Some may ask what is Owners, Breeders and Dogs Against Breed Discrimination and where did it
To answer that question, it is a non profit organization which was started in the interest of not only the
APBT but also the game dog fancier. Unlike most anti BSL groups ran by rescuers or kennel club
affiliates we were started with the dog breeder and preservation of the breed in mind. The whole idea
started online with people who felt their best interests weren't represented in the Anti BSL community.
They felt that too many groups supported spay and neuter measures because they don't support
breeding. Also, they feared that many innocent breeders were being targeted as of late and had no
one to speak on their behalf.
These people called out into the void and asked who would help with this problem? Three people
answered. Those three people started www.Stop-BSL.com and from there built a non profit
organization that has reached out to people across the United States.
Through the platform of www.Stop-BSL.com we have been able to distribute information and hold
raffles in more than 10 states at different breed club and dog sporting events. We have helped
orchestrate petitions in multiple cities and personally written to hundreds of councilmen and mayors.
We have helped research the underhanded deeds of groups like the Humane Society of the United
States for individuals who were wrongly accused of dog fighting in order to further the animal rights
agenda of breed extermination.
And, In our second year of existence we are registered as a non profit with the Washington Secretary
of State and applying for 501(c)3 status with the IRS. We hope to reach out to more
communities and make an indelible mark on the dog world for the better. To that end we publish three
separate blogs which can be found through our website.
Currently, we are working towards a fund raising goal of $1000.00 for 2009. We are more than 60%
there. This goal will see the launch of the “Campaign to Expose the HSUS.” A separate website, which
is supported by our organization, dedicated to exposing the extremist goals and tactics employed by
the HSUS against everyday pit bull owners. This campaign will begin with a website including written
and visual information. It will be supported by an ad campaign in both radio and print ads. This is your
chance to get the truth about BSL and the groups that support it out to the masses!
If you are wondering how you can help this wonderful breed beat the odds and survive please visit us
online. Something as small as displaying our banner on your website or blog can help us inform the
public and gain support. Something as simple as buying a shirt, bumper sticker or button can help us
towards our goals and help you start the anti BSL conversation in your community.
I hope that you have a better understanding of our organization now and can take a moment to find
out more by visiting us online or even emailing your questions to us. We are always happy to help.
