IA: Help end breed bans in Iowa

Responsible dog owners should be allowed to care for whatever breed of dog they choose.

Breed-based dog laws are outdated, costly to enforce, and have been proven ineffective at keeping communities safe. 

Iowa legislators are considering a bill (HF 651) that would prevent local governments from adopting or enforcing breed-specific legislation (BSL) statewide. 

Twenty-two states have passed similar provisions because breed-specific ordinances violate basic property rights, fail to enhance public safety, and are expensive to enforce.
