Tell Cincinnati Ohio to end breed discrimination now!

The city of Cincinnati is tearing families apart by seizing and killing family dogs based on appearance alone. This does not protect the public from dangerous or vicious dogs because it is based on appearance and not behavior. Research has shown that breed neutral dangerous dog laws that target RECKLESS owners keep communities safe. Tell Cincinnati City Council members that you won't support their discriminatory breed ban and you want a breed neutral dangerous dog law put into place. Toledo and Cleveland both have replaced their discriminatory ordinances with breed neutral laws and it's time for Cincinnati to give it's citizens the same protection.

      I own a pitbull and she is thee most loving wonderful dog ive ever seen. However we do not kill humans simply because they bite, or look wrong, or growl at people. Dogs make mistakes just as people do. Suck it up and stop killing god creatures for the sake of proving a point.

      I TOTALLY DISAGREE WITH THIS LAW I HAVE BOXERS AND TO SOME THEY ARE AGGRESSIVE LOOKING BUT IF YOU KNEW THEM YOU WOULD SAY DIFFERENT. FOCUS ON GIVING ANIMAL CRUELTY CASES STRONGER PUNISHMENTS INSTEAD OF AGAIN TAKING IT OUT ON THE INNOCENT ANIMALS. ANIMALS AREN'T BORN NASTY PEOPLE MAKE THEM NASTY AND AGGRESSIVE.

      Mother Earth nurtures us, she feeds us, and she teaches us. The beauty of all living things resides with her and it is our duty to protect and look after what we have. No more cruelty, no more torcher, no more killing for greed, No More! We need to step up as human beings and protect the earth and all living things equally!

      We own a pity mix and he is THE sweetest dog ever! This type of ban is cruel to people that have to relocate and have to give up their beloved pets. There is NO reason why ANY city has the authority to seize a pet that has done NO wrong whatsoever. Responsible pit owners KNOW that HOW they dog is raised has EVERYTHING to do with how they behave. This law is plan ridiculous.

      The problem will spin out of control, causing countless heartache of owners and families and needless death of innocent animals, unless you look at the real issue.
