Change the breed restriction policy of copperas cove animal control

This petition had 2,550 supporters

It is the city of Copperas Cove,Texas policy to not adopt out Rottweilers, Chows, Pit bulls or mixes of those breeds to the public. Right now only 501c3 rescues can pull those dogs and adopt them out on their own. Copperas Cove is the only city in this area to have this restriction. With the city manager stepping down there is no better time than to change this policy.
Copperas Cove has some of the best Animal Control Officers you will find. They are allowed to make the tough calls on other individual animals that might come in aggressive but have no say in "dangerous" breeds. This is not just an insult to the many breed advocates out there but a direct insult to our ACOs (Animal Control Officers). The city is indirectly telling them they are not qualified to distinguish if a dog has good temperament if it's one of those breeds. The Fort Hood area has a ton of good people willing to adopt these breeds but they aren't being given the chance by the city. Please sign this petition, share it and even email the Mayor of Copperas Cove at . Let him know that innocent dogs deserve a chance at finding homes despite their breed. Also please remember our Animal Control can do nothing about this and this problem falls only on our City Elected Officials.
