House Bill 905 will end breed discrimination in Missouri.

Best Friends Animal Society believes that all dogs are individuals, and that the focus of any law pertaining to dangerous dogs or reckless dog owners should be on their individual behaviors.

In Missouri, it’s legal for overreaching local officials to outlaw pet dogs of any breed or mixed breed ― at any time. That means that any city can ban your pet, even if your dog has done nothing. That's something that few Americans agree with. In fact, a whopping 84 percent of Americans believe that federal, state or local governments shouldn't be allowed to tell people what kind of dog they can own. HB 905 would stop this infringement on your rights and save the lives of dogs.

A hearing on this important humane legislation will be held Wednesday, February 22 in the Local Government Committee.

Politics is not a spectator sport.  Please take action today by calling your state representative and letting him or her know that you support this bill. You can find your state representative’s contact information by using our online tool

Dear [Decision Maker],

As a voter and constituent, I urge you to support HB 905 to stop local governments from infringing on the rights of Missouri citizens rights to own and care for whatever breed of pet dog they choose.

I am counting on you to protect our freedom and help make Missouri the 21st state to ban breed discrimination.
