Victory! Cincinnati Repeals Breed Ban

 

 

Dog lovers and animal advocates finally saw a victory yesterday when the Cincinnati City Council in Ohio voted 8-1 to repeal language in the city’s vicious dog ordinance that made owning a pit bull within city limits illegal.

“It’s fantastic. It’s been a long effort, but we’ve had some great supporters from all across the country … that’s had an overwhelming affect on Council. Dog owners, of pit bulls or not, have flooded Council with requests to change the law,” said Jim Tomaszewski, SPCA Cincinnati trustee and lobbyist for the removal of the city’s BSL.

The ban had been in effect since 2003 under the guise of public safety and was kept despite an amendment to state laws last February that changed the definition of vicious dogs so that they would no no longer be defined solely based on looks.

Fortunately, advocates kept fighting for the repeal arguing that it was wasting law enforcement’s time, along with a lot of taxpayer money spent on supporting confiscated dogs while their cases were pending and prosecuting the few people who kept pit bulls, in addition to the fact that it adversely affects good dogs and responsible owners.

A Task Force for the Humane Treatment of Animals will also be created to crack down on animal abusers and promote humane care.

Petition to fire Patti Mercer and investigate Houston SPCA
2 years ago

http://www.change.org/petitions/petition-to-fire-patti-mercer-and-investigate-houston-spca

 

Because the Houston SPCA is a non profit funded solely by donations, the organization is above providing kill numbers so the public can be made aware of how many animals are being euthanized at this facility.

According to the Mayor's Task Force Report, Houston SPCA kills 65% of the animals that it takes in.

to you, Lenicka for adding that other petition. I have already signed it and too bad  that there are not a hundred more being circulated by the residents of Houston to get this lady fired. She is bought and paid for by the elite and thus does NOT speak for or protect the city's strays.

Breed Specific Legislation is a knee-jerk reaction to a combination of misinformation, media hype and a relatively few irresponsible owners. While proponents of BSL claim that it will reduce dog bite incidents, long-term studies show that BSL is not effective.
