Tell Your Story: Support Ban on Homeowners Insurance Profiling Breeds


Share

If you have a dog that is referred to as a pit bull, homeowners insurance can cost more or may even be unavailable. This discrimination holds true even if your dog, described as a pit bull, is a therapy dog and has passed a temperament testing to visit seniors in a nursing facility. And it’s not only about dogs called pit bulls, depending on the insurance company and the state where you live – many breeds are profiled against.

Buoyed by a proposal from Best Friends, Illinois could lead the way to put an end to the practice of charging more for homeowners insurance solely because of presumed dog breed, or even denying coverage.

If you agree  and live in Illinois, please tell your state Senator to support Senate Bill 2462 led by Senator Linda Holmes (42nd). This bill may make common sense to veterinarians, veterinary nurses and technicians, animal behavior consultants and dog trainers – but it’s hardly a done deal. No surprise, the insurance industry is saying such a bill is unnecessary – and no one is discriminated against.

SHARE YOUR STORY, AND SUPPORT DOGS KNOWN AS PIT BULLS, AND AKITAS, ROTTWEILERS, DOBERMANS AND MANY OTHERS SO OFTEN PROFILED:

Please describe a time you’ve had trouble finding or keeping homeowners/renters insurance because of your dog’s breed (whether actual or perceived). Your contribution, via a short description of your experience HERE, and end this unfair practice.
