Liberty, MO: Dogs Need Your Help This Spring! Join the Effort.

Update—April 3, 2019: We have exciting news to report! Voters in Liberty, Missouri, made their voices heard loud and clear on Tuesday when they decisively repealed the city’s decades-old ban on pit bulls with a 52%-48% vote. This victory is the result of the tireless efforts of local advocates who went door to door to urge the citizens of Liberty to vote yes to protect dogs and preserve their right to decide which dog is best for their family. You can read more about the victory here. Thank you, Liberty!

Over three decades ago, the City of Liberty passed a law banning all pit bulls. But on Tuesday, April 2, you will have a historic opportunity to overturn that ban by voting YES on the Pitbull Ban Repeal.

Liberty’s law bans city residents from owning pit bulls, threatens those merely traveling through the city with a pit-bull-type dog, and it could condemn any pit-bull-type dog entering a Liberty animal shelter to euthanasia.

Historically, this kind of breed-specific legislation (“BSL”) has proven ineffective and costly to enforce. Following a thorough study, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) declared its strong opposition to BSL, citing the difficulty in identifying dog breeds and the inaccuracy of dog bite data.

Voting YES on this repeal will restore the rights of Liberty citizens to choose which animal they deem best for their family, and will do away with a law that has had a negative impact on dogs, people and public safety.

Thank you, Liberty!
