Chicago City Council
United States of America

As of today, the Proposed Pit Bull Ban vote has been postponed---It has NOT been presented to the City of Chicago License and Consumer Protection Committee for their vote before being forwarded to the City Council. We were informed that we have to check the online Agenda for further activity. Please keep those signatures coming though-----Every one counts!!! A heartfelt THANK YOU to all that have signed and passed the word along. We will keep you informed on the proposed ban.
On February 11th, 2004 at 10:00 a.m., the Chicago City Council will be voting on a proposed Pit Bull Ban, headed by #19 Alderman Virgina Rugai. Even though Illinois HB 184 is designed to prevent (for lack of a better term) BSL, Chicago is a home rule municipality, therefore can over-ride the State Law.

Below is a link to all the Aldermen for Chicago. Please take the time to phone, fax and/or write your opposition to this proposal:

Here is Mayor Daley's email to contact him directly:


There is also another online petition created by a wonderful organization called the Furry Friends Foundation, a no kill animal shelter. It is specifically for Mayor Daley.


If you will be protesting in person, please take a minute to sign the petition and PLEASE REMEMBER: Be respectful and courteous to promote a positive image. Our dogs are at stake.

We, the undersigned, implore the Chicago City Council to vote no for the Proposed Pit Bull Ban. Instead, we suggest that the City Council invest its resources in Punishing the Deed NOT the Breed.
