Breed Restrictions for Housing Disappear in Florida


Florida does some good too, as a bill that prohibits dog breed discrimination in Government supported housing is expected to soon be signed into law by Governor Ron De Santis after handily passing both the state House and Senate.

Florida. Senate Bill 942 would prohibit government housing from restrictions based on dog breed or mixes. The bill would also protect dogs by adding that weight and size are also no longer allowed to be restricted in public housing, so any dog of any weight will be allowed.

Next step, a similar bill to apply to all housing, which Illinois may work on. This is all incredibly important as housing is a significant explanation for dogs relinquished to shelters, people just can’t find places to live with large dogs or dogs of certain breeds or mixes.

Also, on the Governor’s desk a bill to eliminate the Miami-Dade County breed ban.
