  1. Im just wondering when i will be able to get a small amount of help to begin revolution and stop P.B.T.T. and BSL in their tracks…

    • Brian, I’m not trying to sound snide or sarcastic at all, but… welcome to the world of nonprofit advocacy. It will probably take years for you to build your organization; it takes a TON of time, energy, commitment, leadership, organization, connections, outreach, and cold hard cash to grow a not-for-profit. Many newbies to this arena (again, not to belittle your efforts at all) are surprised by this–they think all it takes is a website with a message to build an empire of willing volunteers. This is, unfortunately, not reality. Best of luck to you with your endeavors!

    It is a shame and a disgrace that many lovely innocent dogs had to pay the price for this ignorant, wrong policy. At least now I hope you will amend it and put an end to ineffective and unjust BSL.
