“Dangerous Dogs or Irresponsible Owners” Conference

Roxann. Busy being not dangerous.

Roxann. Busy being not dangerous.

Brooklyn Law School will be holding a conference entitled “Dangerous Dogs or Irresponsible Owners”, November 15th in conjunction with the New York State Bar Association, the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals and the ASPCA.

The intent of the program is to explain NYC’s current Dangerous Dog laws meant to address dog bites. This legislation includes some breed specific laws and the conference will examine the pitfalls of such laws.

Those encouraged to attend include anyone involved in safety and responsible dog ownership and particularly those involved in law enforcement, government officials, shelter and rescue staff as well as the legal community. Registration is required and must be done by November 3rd.

    Of interest: Current New York State law prevents municipalities such as New York City from enacting breed-specific legislation. A resolution introduced by City Council Public Safety Chair Peter Vallone, Jr. and co-sponsored by Council Members Koppell, Martinez, McMahon, Nelson, Sanders Jr., Weprin and Foster calls on the state to repeal this law so that NYC may ban pit bulls and other so-called “dangerous dogs.” The League of Humane Voters of New York City’s Issues page has a sample letter to your elected official opposing this resolution and also a legal briefing on the subject. Check it out!

    Of related interest is “An Army of Compassion for Pets Goes Where the Need Is Greatest” from yesterday’s New York Times. It profiles volunteers from Little Shelter Animal Rescue in Huntington, LI who help out deprived dogs in economically depressed communities, a “soup kitchen for dogs.”
