Aurora, CO eyes repeal of breed ban!

Aurora City Council members are slated to decide on Monday, April 11 whether the city’s ban on pit bulls should be repealed.

During discussions regarding whether the city would comply with the ADA and allow “pit bulls” as service dogs, council members decided the pit bull ordinance as a whole should be reviewed. Council members are considering eliminating some or all of the city’s breed restrictions or repealing the entire ordinance.

It should be noted that overall dog bites have increased in Aurora since the city passed BSL in 2006.

Please take a moment to send polite letters to the Aurora city council to encourage them to repeal their breed specific ordinance and replace it with a breed-neutral law that promotes a safe community for humans and animals alike.

Fresh on the heels of the repeal of the twenty year-old pit bull ban in Seward County, Kanasa, lets keep the momentum going! A win in Colorado would be HUGE!!!

If you are in or near the Aurora area, please make every effort to attend the council meeting on Monday. The study session meeting will start at 6:00 pm approximately in the Aurora Room at the same address. (Time is not set officially until late Friday) While the public can not speak at this meeting, it gives a huge message to council members when there are several people in the room. The issue will not be discussed at the regular city council meeting at 7:30, but you can speak with a time limit of 3 minutes at that meeting if you wish.
