Ask your Florida legislators to support House Bill 941 / Senate Bill 942.

FL: Help keep pets and families together

Currently, a variety of dog breeds are restricted in public housing, making it difficult for families with pets to find stable housing during an already-difficult affordable housing crisis.

Breed/size restrictions use government funds to force families to either surrender their pets to animal shelters (at a cost to taxpayers) or choose potentially unsafe or unstable housing.    

House Bill 941 / Senate Bill 942 would end breed and size restrictions in government-funded housing, helping families with pets stay together.

TAKE ACTION: Ask your representatives in the Florida House and Senate to support and cosponsor HB 941 / SB 942.

Note: Current bill sponsors (House District 114 and Senate District 38) will be sent a thank-you message instead.
