Pit Bull Image Legislative Alert

Urge your representatives to treat all dogs as individuals.

We all want safe and humane communities for people and pets. Commerce City’s outdated breed discriminatory “pit bull” ban does not enhance public safety. Indeed, it was just mentioned in bestselling author W. Bruce Cameron's new book, A Dog’s Way Home. The ordinance needs to change, and your voice will help repeal it. 

Currently in Commerce City, any pet arbitrarily deemed to be a “pit bull” is banned, even if the dog has done nothing wrong. That's something that few Americans agree with. In fact, 84 percent of Americans believe that the government shouldn't be allowed to tell people what kind of dog they can own. 

Please take action today by contacting your elected officials and urging them to repeal and replace Commerce City’s outdated, discriminatory ordinance. Innocent dogs shouldn’t be punished for looking a certain way.

Politics isn’t a spectator sport, so please act now. You can help increase our impact by sharing this message with your Commerce City friends and family.

Thank you. Together, we are fighting breed discrimination to Save Them All.

Dear [Decision Maker],

We all want safe and humane communities for people and pets. As a Commerce City resident, I'm asking you to repeal the city's antiquated breed discriminatory ordinance targeting "pit bulls." It was recently called out in W. Bruce Cameron's new book, A Dog's Way Home. Our ordinance is not only ineffective at promoting public safety, but it is expensive to enforce and violates the property rights of responsible pet owners.

In America, responsible dog owners who follow safety rules should be able to own whatever kind of dog they choose. It's that simple.

Please stop punishing responsible dog owners and innocent dogs. Please repeal and replace the current breed discriminatory law and instead enact a comprehensive breed neutral dangerous dog law.
