Cleveland, OH, will consider a repeal of their breed-specific laws on June 1. I have requested a copy of the proposal but they have not yet made it available. Remember that Ohio has statewide BSL that targets “pit bull” owners, and until state law is changed, even “pit bull” owners in Cleveland will still be subject to discriminatory regulations. But this is nevertheless a step forward, and residents are encouraged to attend the meeting below to show support for the repeal of BSL.
Thanks to Jodi, Jean, and Dawn for getting the word out about this potential repeal.
On Monday, May 16th, Cleveland Councilman Matt Zone introduced an ordinance that will repeal Cleveland’s breed specific vicious dog law. It has been referred to the Safety Committee where it will be heard on June 1st. Councilman Zone asked for a big turn out to the committee meeting, so those that live in the area please consider attending. The meeting will be at:
Cleveland City Hall
601 Lakeside Ave. Rm 217
Cleveland, Ohio 44114
