Tell Ohio Senators to End Breed Discrimination in Ohio and Help Domestic Violence Victims

Tell Ohio Senators to End Breed Discrimination in Ohio and Help Domestic Violence Victims

    1. Petition by

      Ohio Coalition of Dog Advocates

In May 2010, House Bill 55 (with HB79 added to it) overwhelmingly passed the Ohio House of Representatives and was sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee for consideration.  This bill allows judges to add companion animals to domestic violence protection orders, requires counseling for juvenile animal abusers, and removes the term "pit bull" from the Ohio Revised Code, thus allowing vicious dogs to be defined by behavior and not by physical appearance.

We can not allow this important bill to die in committee!  All of Ohio's citizens will benefit from the passage of House Bill 55.  Please tell Ohio's Senators to schedule a hearing on House Bill 55 and to vote YES on moving it forward.
