4 Websites Dedicated to Dogs Killed by Police

By    |   Sunday, 05 July 2015 04:03 PM

Almost half of intentional shootings by police officers involve dogs, one study found, and protestors against these “puppycides” have sought to raise awareness about the issue.

The Seattle Times, quoting a study from the National Canine Research Council, said protestors want to provide information and research for journalists and concerned citizens to take a stance and provide the impetus for reform measures in the law enforcement systems.

Here are four websites dedicated to raising awareness about dog deaths and police shootings:

1. PuppycideDB
Information on this webpage said it is the first online nationwide database to track dog deaths due to police and other law enforcement shootings. The site’s goal is to “provide a fast, comprehensive record of every police shooting of an animal in the United States using open source software that can be shared freely and anonymously with anyone and hosted anywhere.” It seeks to make the facts readily available to journalists and citizens alike.

2. Dogs Shot by Police
This Facebook page that advocates for change in law enforcement officers’ policies and actions pertaining to dog shootings has garnered more than 15,000 “likes.” According to its description, the group seeks to remember and memorialize the dogs killed, support legislation and policies that reduce animal shootings, and allow all people to track the legal processes and share their stories and ideas for eliminating unjust shootings.

3. Dogs that Cops Killed
This blog seeks to share dog owners’ stories and memorialize the dogs shot and killed by law enforcement officers. It provides pictures along with each case description. One of the most unique cases listed involved an officer who killed a dog by slitting its throat with a knife after the dog was restrained.
