Suggested Postcard/letter to City Council Members

Dear City Council Member _________________________

I am writing to you to express my opposition to the breed-specific provision in the proposed "Animal Protection Act Amendment 2007" (bill 17-89). This provision does not serve animal protection, it promotes animal cruelty. Moreover, it is well known that dog bites (the health problem that seems to be motivating this provision) occur not because of breeds but because of irresponsible ownership and stewardship of dogs. That is the problem that the city needs to address.

There are other reasons I am against this provision, but the above will do for the time being.

Please vote to remove this provision from what might otherwise be a sound piece of legislation, ov vote against the bill entirely.

Thank you. __________________________ (Signature)
