Ban Dog Breed Specific Housing Regulations
Don't bully my breed!
This petition is to bring to legislation in Connecticut the ban on all dog breed specific housing regulations. While a homeowner or leasing agency is entitled to decide that they do not want any pet to occupy their property, our goal is to make it illegal for housing to be denied primarily based on dog breed. Dog owners may be required to have their dog tested prior to being accepted into a home or community, but this will ensure that dog parents will no longer be discriminated against based on the breed they choose to keep.
With the movement of this, we hope that all individuals, regardless of the breed of dog they choose, should they qualify for the property they are applying, will not be denied solely based on their dog of choice.
1) Increased number of housing opportunities for you, your family & your loving pet.
2) Decrease the number of animals in shelters looking for homes. Many breeds stay in shelters for years because potential adopters know they will have a hard time finding an apartment or home.
3) Support your freedom of choice & don't be bullied into choosing a "more accepted" breed.
