The Humane Society of the United States Applauds Formation of Joint Task Force to Address Tracey v. Solesky Decision

The Humane Society of the United States Maryland State Director Tami Santelli issued the following statement in response to Speaker of the House Mike Busch and Senate President Mike Miller's announcement of a joint legislative task force to study the Court of Appeals decision in Tracey v. Solesky:

“The court decision hurts all dogs, not just pit bulls. If we don’t turn it around swiftly, Maryland families and their dogs will be thrown out on the streets, and pet-related businesses and jobs will suffer. The Humane Society of the United States is grateful to Speaker Mike Busch and Senate President Mike Miller for working to address this problem with great haste.”
