DogsBite.org is a national dog bite victims' group dedicated to reducing
serious dog attacks. Through our work, we hope to protect both people
and pets from future attacks. Our website contains a wide collection of
data to help policymakers and citizens learn about dangerous dogs. Our
research focuses on pit bull type dogs. Due to selective breeding
practices that emphasize aggression and tenacity, this class of dogs
negatively impacts communities the most.
DogsBite.org hosts important dog bite fatality and injury studies in the
Bite Statistics section of our website. We also provide documentation
of pit bull facts and fiction. In the Legislating Dogs portion of our
site, we offer a key FAQ sheet about breed-specific laws (BSL), examples
of these laws (state by state) and the constitutionality of these laws.
The Victim Realities section of our website offers a glance into the
unforgettable stories victims leave behind and much more.
