Louisville Metro Council to Vote on BSL, Limit Laws and Breeder Licensing Action Needed Now!

On Monday, the Louisville Government Administration, Rules, Ethics and Audit Committee approved changes to the animal control ordinance which include breed-specific legislation, a limit law and restrictions on breeders and dog owners. The ordinance will be voted on by the full Metro Council on December 19th. This ordinance will have a devastating effect on dog owners and breeders in Louisville and may have a dramatic impact on the Kentuckiana Cluster, the largest dog show cluster in the country. Fanciers, breeders and concerned dog owners are urged to immediately contact their representative on the Metro Council and to attend the meeting next week.

What: Louisville Metro Council Meeting
When: 6pm Tuesday, December 19th
Where: Metro Council Chambers 3rd Floor City Hall, 601 West Jefferson Street
