NY: Help end breed discrimination in homeowners insurance

Urge your elected officials to support Assembly Bill 723 and Senate Bill 4286.

All dogs are individuals. Yet when it comes to homeowners insurance policies, New York still permits wealthy companies to discriminate against dogs and the people that care for them.

The good news? Legislation to prohibit breed discrimination in the homeowners insurance market is moving through your state legislature.

Assembly Bill 723 and its companion bill in the senate, S 4286, would compel insurance companies to assess risk based on each individual dog’s behavior — not the arbitrary factors of breed or appearance.

If enacted, these bills will save thousands of dogs throughout the state and set a lifesaving precedent that we hope to see repeated throughout the country.

TAKE ACTION: Urge your assembly member and senator to support A 723 and S 4286, respectively.

Say no to discrimination: Support A 723 and S 4286

Dear [Decision Maker],

As your constituent, I urge you to support A 723 and S 4286, two common-sense bills that would end the pernicious practice of breed discrimination in the homeowners insurance market.



These bills are a priority for me and for the millions of other New Yorkers that care about their pets. Please support these common-sense bills today.

Thank you.

Sincerely,
