This petition will be sent to the United States Congress and Senate.
Currently, a homeowner can be denied or lose their homeowner\'s insurance coverage due to the breed of dog they own. Certain breeds are listed as vicious, and the individual dog\'s record is not taken into account. This practice is referred to as breed bias. The result of breed bias is more dogs being placed in shelters because their owners are forced to choose between the insurance their mortgage requires or their pets.
We the undersigned ask that a law be passed making this form of discrimination illegal, as a dog\'s propensity to bite or attack is based on nurture rather than nature. Instead of being allowed to deny insurance based on dog breed, we ask that insurance companies only be allowed to deny further coverage if claims are made involving an attack by the individual dog.
This petition is sponsered by Kristena-Leigh Millington, a dog lover who never wants to see anyone have to choose between having a home and sharing it with the four-legged creatures they love. I can be contacted with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org. I also encourage individuals to print up similar petitions and get signatures to send to their state\'s representatives. The more voices that speak, the louder the message.
