2020 Code of Alabama
Title 3 - Animals.
Chapter 6A - Control of Dangerous Dogs
Section 3-6A-2 - Legislative Findings.
The Legislature finds that certain dogs are an increasingly serious and widespread threat to the safety and welfare of citizens of this state by virtue of their unjustified attacks on and associated injury to individuals; that these attacks are in part attributable to the failure of owners to confine and properly train and control these dogs; that existing laws inadequately address this problem; and that it is therefore appropriate and necessary to impose a uniform set of state requirements on the owners of dangerous dogs.
