The Ventura County Animal Regulation Commission wants to pass a breed-discriminatory mandatory spay/neuter law that would only apply to owners of dogs with a “pit bull” appearance. To do this, the county wants buy-in from all of its cities.
Oxnard, CA, will hold a study session to discuss the county’s BS-MSN proposal during the April 17 council meeting at 7:00 PM. The public is given time to comment on the study session after staff presentation and before council discussion. If you are a resident or local, please attend the council meeting and express your opposition to BSL of any kind.
Please encourage city officials to drop the breed-specific language in their proposals. Breed-specific MSN—like any other breed-specific law—discriminates against people and their dogs based on whether the owner or dog have a “desirable” or “undesirable” physical appearance.
Whether you support or oppose MSN, it doesn’t need to be breed-specific. If MSN is good for dogs that look like “pit bulls,” it is good for any dog. By removing the breed-specific focus, the county and cities can avoid the expense and inequality that goes with BSL.
