Whitehall City Council in Ohio will meet on Tuesday, March 18th, 2008 at 6:30-7:00 pm to hear testimony in opposition to the proposed Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) banning pit bulls in the city.

"Everyone must attend the meeting to show that we are not going to allow Ohio cities to keep interfering with our rights to own companion animals," says Shana Klein, President of the Canine Advocates Of Ohio. "Please do not allow this proposed ban to pass. All people desiring to testify in opposition of the proposed ban will have three minutes to testify. Even if you do not like speaking, you must stand up for 3 minutes to support these dogs and stop another ban."

Canine Advocates of Ohio ask that anyone who is a Whitehall resident, business owner, vet, trainer, or anyone in Northeast Ohio who desires to have a say in the BSL issue attend Whitehall City Council at 360 S. Yearling Rd., Whitehall, Ohio 43213.

It should be noted that one of the leaders of the "RDOWs" group (mostly run by non-apbt women) thinks anti-chaining/tethering legislation is a better alternative to BSL:

...In addition, if you have not already done so, please take the time to
contact city council members prior to the meeting!!!
Council members like to see alternatives that have worked,
including, among other things, anti chaining/tethering laws,...
