Have a News Tip?
Do you have the inside story on proposed Breed Discriminatory Legislation (BDL) or a local perspective on a recent dog-attack story?
Did you decide to take a stand against BDL?
If you have a lead on a Pit-Bull or BDL-related story, we'd love to hear from you. E-mail us your story and contact information. We respect your privacy and will ask your permission before identifying you by name in any story we publish online or present on our radio program. If your tip leads to a story—online or on our radio program—we'll send you one of our new Pit Bulletin Legal News t-shirts.
Need to get in touch with us?
We welcome questions and inquiries. To contact us, write to the relevant e-mail address. We look forward to hearing from you!

Pit Bulletin Legal News History
Pit Bulletin Legal Defense ("PBLD") began with Pit Bulletin Legal News, a legally oriented news site for the Pit Bull community. Pit Bulletin Legal News then branched into social media and in April 2012 launched an online radio show (PBLN Radio). In September 2012, Pit Bulletin Legal News took over StopBSL.org, a top online source for information on breed-specific/discriminatory legislation.
In 2014, we saw a need for a reliable way for concerned members of the advocacy community to assist dog owners facing breed-discriminatory legal action. We decided to become an official non-profit to organize trustworthy fundraising efforts and support lawyers trying BDL cases.
In February 2015 we officially became a 501c3 organization, Pit Bulletin Legal Defense. While our umbrella name has changed, our mission remains the same: fighting breed-discriminatory laws and policies through objective and fact-based advocacy.
