A repeal of Wooster Ohio’s breed discriminatory law has been set for its first date. The topic has been added to the agenda for the April 15th council meeting, 7:30 PM.
In 2000 Wooster banned dogs they defined as a “Pit Bull dog”. In the ordinance a banned dog is defined as
“Pit Bull dog” shall include, but not be limited to, any of the following: American Pit Bull Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier or American Staffordshire Terrier, or any mixed breed of dog which includes as an element of its breeding any of the aforementioned breeds as to be identifiable as partially of any of the aforementioned breeds.
We have been given a copy of the proposed changes to the law that would make Wooster a breed neutral community. Wooster’s proposed animal law changes can be found here.
The proposed changes strengthen Wooster’s dog laws in many ways that will be good for the community. Wooster will no doubt see many benefits in enacting this legislation.
Wooster residents: Please reach out to officials to briefly and politely ask them to support Ordinance 2013-16, an Ordinance Amending Chapter 505 of the Wooster code of ordinances. Contact information for officials can be found here.
Thank you, Robin, for the information.
