We are getting very, very close to the September 12 postcard deadline! If you haven’t sent in your postcards, now is the time to do it!
Other ways to help: Post the campaign on Facebook. Tweet with the #endBSL tag. If you’ve already sent a postcard in, please feel free to send more! Questions or comments? Need help creating yours? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get back to you right away!
Next week I’m going to start the official one-month countdown with stats, totals, and updates!
Also, for a little inspiration and further proof as to why we need to act now, check out this an awesome article: Which dogs bite more than others? One of the highlights from the article:
The Dangerous Dog Act of 1991 was supposed to protect the British public from dog bites. In fact, even after the act was enacted, and the number of “Pit Bulls” in England was dramatically reduced, the number of bite incidents actually increased, over about 17 years, by almost 50 percent. The Act has now been repealed because it not only did not work, but it is believed to have contributed to the increase in bites over its tenure.
I know everyone has such a busy, limited schedule, so in lieu of a full post today, I’d like to encourage you to read that entire article. It’s full of really solid data that we can use to educate city officials. Bookmark this article and consider passing it on whenever you hear of proposed BSL! Or cite it in the text of a postcard to Denver!
Let’s keep those postcards rolling in! Thank you all for your hard work and support. We’re in the home stretch!
