About

BSL Census is a user friendly database of all currently known cases of Breed Specific Legislation across the United States and Canada. We provide a one-stop portal for verification and documentation of all BSL cases brought to our attention or found through our own research. This database can be used for many reasons, but most notably for travel information, moving preparation, and research. All the information you find at BSL Census is verified, gathered and published by an all volunteer staff of researchers who work in other fields of animal advocacy.

BSL Census got its start as multiple spreadsheets held by multiple groups and individuals to keep track of BSL for their own research purposes. These lists, some incorrect or more detailed than others, were kept for personal research purposes for each group or person personal reference. Â We used these spreadsheets in our own fights against BSL and reference to give people information when they needed it for a certain municipality.
