End the Ridiculous Breed Ban and Killing of innocent dogs in Denver CO!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 5,000!

Yes, this is still happening in 2018! The breed ban on pitbulls in Denver was passed in 1989 and some may not even know it exsists! According to the Denver AC and Denver city website ; “The ban has been in place since 1989. The ban is in effect for American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, or Staffordshire Bull Terrier.Pit bull type dogs are defined as any dog displaying the majority of physical traits of any one or more of the above breeds, or any dog exhibiting those distinguishing (physical) characteristics, which substantially conform to the standards established by AKC or UKC .The ban is not the entire city (certain counties do not uphold it and some ever so often have proposals to try to overturn it in Court hearings like the Current proposal in Lakewood county), but the city and county of Denver do strictly enforce and ultimately terminate the dog if can’t be relocated in time” I know this is shocking to those of us who know Co to be a dog friendly state but if no one ever takes action nothing will be done. Below are the names and emails of both council women (yes women!!) upholding this ridiculous outdated ban killing these sweet babies for no reason. You can Contact: Robin Kniech at 720-337-7712 or Kniechatlarge@denvergov.org and Debra Ortega at 720-337-7713 or ortegaatlarge@denvergovorg. Speaking to the AC of Denver they were polite but so matter of fact about the dog being put down that I more and more do think Mass killings of these beautiful dogs are being done behind close doors in one of the best and animal living states in the country! Sign the petition and end this ridiculous law now!
