Jackson TN Seeks To Impose Anti-Pet Ordinance & Criminalize Dog Ownership

The Jackson, Tennessee city council is considering an anti-pet ordinance that criminalizes pet ownership, violates the constitutional rights of local dog-owning citizens, and will increase the number of pets euthanized.

The American Rottweiler Club is adamantly opposed to anti-pet legislation as ineffective and even dangerous in the prevention of dog bites and the protection of animals.

American Rottweiler Club Formally Responds To California Anti-Pet Bill CA SB 250 By Dean Florez

The American Rottweiler Club is adamantly opposed to the cruel and inhumane treatment of dogs, the exploitation of innocent animals, and illegal, sub-standard breeding operations.

We therefore respectfully submit our official and unequivocal opposition to California SB 250 and to any other bill which makes criminals out of law-abiding, tax-paying citizens and home and hobby breeders, or anyone owning intact dogs.

California SB 250 is not only irresponsible, cruel and inhumane, it sets a dangerous precedent for the type and scope of legislation.
