Support HB79 (Ohio)

HB 79 has been assigned to the Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee. Just as a reminder, HB 79 would amend § 955.11 of the Ohio Revised Code to remove “pit bulls” from the definition of “vicious dog” in state law.

Please take a moment to write letters of SUPPORT for Representative Sears’ bill that would remove the “pit bull” clause from Ohio’s vicious dog law.

In addition, OHIO RESIDENTS should contact their respective district representatives to encourage them to support HB79. You can find your local representatives on the home page of the Ohio Legislature website.

Finally, please write to Representative Sears to thank her for sponsoring HB 79 and bringing their very important issue to the floor:
Barbara R. Sears ( R )
77 S. High St
10th Floor
Columbus, OH

Tel: (614) 466-1731
Fax: (614) 719-6946
Email: district46@ohr. state.oh. us

If you would like to write to the representatives via snail mail, all correspondence should be sent to The Honorable ____________, 77 South High Street, Columbus, Ohio 43215-6111.

It would be an incredible achievment to have the breed specific language removed from Ohio’s state law. So please write TODAY…this issue is too important to put off!

  1. Come on people, we cannot let lawmakers take away our dogs and our rights as united states citizens. I am a law abiding ohio resident who has never been so harassed in my life until animal control found out I ownd “pit bulls”. This cannot go on any longer.
