United States: Urge Your U.S. Representative to Support Breed-Neutral Policies in Military Housing

This action is for US residents only.

Far too often, military families are forced to give up their beloved canine companions when they transfer due to discriminatory and inconsistent companion animal policies on military bases. Policies that discriminate against dogs based on breed instead of behavior are not only difficult to enforce, they’re ineffective. And these conflicting policies lead to confusion and heartbreak for military families with dogs.

Please urge your U.S. Representative to include breed-neutral companion animal policies for families living in military housing in the National Defense Authorization Act.

  1. Call your U.S. Representative. Phone calls have much more impact than emails. If you’re able to make a phone call, please do so. You can use this message: “I’m calling to ask my representative to include breed-neutral pet policies on military bases in the National Defense Authorization Act.”
  2. After calling, please send a follow-up email to your U.S. Representative using the form below. Personalizing your message will help it stand out.
