Update (2/11):

HB 667 will bring about the following for all Pit bull and Rottweiler owners:


required to obtain $250,000 liability insurance policy;

home inspections by Animal Control agencies (unannounced and without a court issued warrant);

and mandatory spay or neuter for all dogs of these breeds.


Additionally, this legislation has SERIOUS implications for SHELTER & RESCUE dogs:


If the proposed legislation passes, VERY FEW people will consider adopting a Pit bull, Rottweiler or any dog with that
appears a mix of either, which will ultimately bring about even more perfectly adoptable dogs being euthanized.

More so, many rescue organizations will avoid representing Pit bulls and Rottweilers due to these requirements.



Please contact your legislators and let them know (politely) that you oppose this legislation.


Contact info is available in the 2/10 update - all linked text is underlined.

The HSUS attempted to fund raise for the care of Micheal Vick's dogs, while at the same time suggesting that the dogs needed to be killed.
And to add insult to injury, they weren't even planning on taking possesion of the dogs.

Contact the HSUS and tell them this is unacceptable!
