We’ve got a few issues on city council and legislative agendas this week that need our attention:
Board of Trustees meeting
Monday, February 11 @ 6:00
Residents of Waterford, Michigan are hoping to change the city’s 23-year-old pit bull ban. The residents have approached city officials seeking to remove the ban and replace it with a Responsible Pet Owner’s Ordinance. The issue will be discussed at the Board of Trustees meeting on Monday, Feb. 11. If you are in or around Waterford, please attend the meeting to show your support for repealing the city’s breed specific ordinance.

City Council Meeting
Tuesday, February 12, 2013 @ 5:30
The city council in LaGrange, Georgia is considering relaxing the rules at the city’s shelter to allow pit bulls to be adopted. Under the current shelter policy, if a pit bull is found running at large and isn’t claimed by its owner, the dog is euthanized regardless of his or her temperament or disposition. Only the owner may reclaim the dog. It cannot be put up for adoption with the shelter’s general population under any circumstances.
The city council held and past the first reading in January, and will take a final vote February 12, 2013. If you are in or around LaGrange, GA, please attend the council meeting to show your support for this policy change.
