BSL ALERT: Kenton, Tennessee

UPDATE: I have confirmed with the city clerk’s office that Kenton DOES NOT have an animal control department or an animal shelter.

The town of Kenton, Tennessee has proposed an ordinance that would target “pit bulls” and rottweilers. The Kenton mayor and board of aldermen unanimously approved the first reading on Tuesday night. Three readings are required to approve the proposal as law.

The current city ordinance is being revised because members of the board have voiced concerns that vicious dogs in the city. If approved, the ordinance would “provide residents with more protection because they can to report vicious dogs to the Kenton Police Department,” which leads me to question whether or not the small town even has an animal control officer.

Please send your POLITE, RESPECTFUL and INFORMATIVE letters in opposition to breed specific legislation to the Kenton city officials. Individual contact information is not available for the mayor or board members, but you may send information to the city clerk with a polite request to distribute to each member of the board.

Kenton is a small town of approximately 1,500 people located in Gibson County. Town meetings are held the first Tuesday of each month at 7pm in the Conference Room of City Hall.
