Sponsor Bill: "Indiana Dog Protection Act"

    1. Petition by

      Northwest Indiana Pit Bull Coalition, Inc.

To avoid the fatal shooting of family pets by Law Enforcement Officers. This Bill could easily Mirror Colorado's recent SB226 "Dog Protection Act" which now requires Law Enforcement Officers to undergo specific training related to animal control.

To:
Indiana Governor
Indiana State Senate
Indiana State House
Please Sponser Bill: "Indiana Dog Protection Act" much like Colorado SB 266 which requires Law Enforcement Officers to undergo specific training related to animal control in order to avoid the unnecessary fatal shooting of family pets.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Law enforcement should be trained to recognize that dogs generally are just protecting "their" home and should use other methods instead of fatally shooting a dog.

      Animal Control is highly recommended for officers I believe..I understand an officer only can only have a split second to react..But y belief is...precaution as well as compassion

      Tools of training are used in law enforcement everyday. Animal control should be a part of that training. Not only will it protect the officers involved but the rights of the pets and pet owners. They can't just shoot people, they shouldn't just animals either!

      Treating all animals with respect and compassion, makes for a better society for everyone.
