Ohio House Bill 14

As we mentioned previously when it was Ohio House Bill 79, in the new session of the Ohio House it is Bill 14. But the content remains the same: it would amend § 955.11 of the Ohio Revised Code to remove “pit bulls” from the definition of “vicious dog”. Ohio is the only state in the country that singles out dogs based on breed or way they look like without regard to behavior. We believe all dogs should be judged based on their behavior only. National organizations such as Best Friends strongly support this change in the law as do local Ohio organizations such as the Ohio Coalition of Dog Advocates, join them on Facebook here. Proponent testimony for HB 14 is scheduled for this Wednesday, February 9th at 9 AM in Room 114 of the Ohio Statehouse. There was a great group of supporters last year in support of this bill and we need to do the same now. If you have questions or would like more information, please email helpfido@gmail.com.

These are the dogs of HELP FIDO...our dogs...this is why we are here...
