Shreve, OH considers BSL repeal

Shreve, OH, may soon repeal their BSL, thanks to a local’s efforts. The village council, with the encouragement of the police chief, have agreed to repeal their BSL when HB 14 passes.

We would like to keep things low-key and encouraging. If you contact city officials, please THANK them for being leaders in the movement toward modern, effective dog laws and away from breed-specific laws.

Please keep correspondence brief and positive. We don’t want to overwhelm them and potentially upset them.

Many communities instituted BSL years ago simply because the state did it. In fact, a large number of municipalities copied the state vicious dog law directly into their own ordinances, BSL and all. The success of HB 14 has sent a strong message to OH municipalities: the state’s BSL has been a failure and there are better options out there. We expect to see many more municipalities in Ohio re-think their BSL when the state law changes.

Many thanks to Robin for letting us know!
