Highland Heights, OH: Council plans to repeal BSL

Highland Heights, OH, city council is working on a new dog ordinance in response to the recent change in state law. The old ordinance was breed-specific (mirrored old state law), but the council president has stated that the new ordinance will be breed-neutral.

We’re concerned because the comments left on the Cleveland.com article below (see link below) are extremely pro-BSL. Let’s not allow council to be discouraged or misled by a handful of BSL supporters.

Please send your notes of thanks and encouragement to Highland Heights city council:
