American Family Insurance has a corporate canine profiling policy. They deem any homeowner who has an American Pit Bull Terrier, Chow, Akita, or Rottweiler as ineligible for coverage.
Pets are members of the family, too. American Family should not decide whether to insure a homeowner simply because of his pet's appearance. They should base their corporate policies on a dog's behavior, not breed.
Take action now! Politely tell American Family corporate executives to stop discriminating against breeds of dogs.
UPDATE JULY 9, 2010
American Family Insurance is sending out a letter to participants stating that the reason why they discriminate against dogs is because of the CDC (Centers for Disease Control). The CDC, in their report, stated that they were against breed discriminatory measures.
American Family also mentioned that their agents can't judge dog behavior-yet they are expecting them to correctly identify the heritage of a mixed-breed dog? The petition has been modified to call them on their bogus claims. Keep spreading the word!
