Urge your representatives to treat all dogs as individuals.
We all want safe and humane communities for people and pets. Garfield Heights’ outdated breed discriminatory “pit bull” ban does not enhance public safety. The ordinance needs to change, and your voice is needed to make that happen. In Garfield Heights, 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. But there is good news! The Garfield Heights City Council is considering an ordinance that would put an end to the ban and require that all dogs be treated as individuals. Please take action today. Contact your elected officials and urge them to repeal this outdated, discriminatory ordinance, and pass the proposed breed-neutral ordinance. Innocent dogs shouldn’t be punished for looking a certain way.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 Garfield Heights resident, I'm asking you to repeal the city's antiquated breed discriminatory ordinance that targets "pit bulls," and pass the proposed breed neutral ordinance.
