Pit’s End: Fighting Breed Discrimination in Housing

On a daily basis we field inquiries from the community asking for help finding pit bull friendly housing. While Austin continues to be an incredibly pet friendly city, there is still concern with policies and restrictions against pit bull type dogs enforced by landlords and apartment complexes. Many of these policies/restrictions are based on unfounded data and misrepresentation of the truth.

A huge thank you goes out to Nina Hernandez with the Austin Chronicle for such a well written piece highlighting the breed discriminatory housing issue in the Austin area. Nina spoke to many animal welfare leaders for insight into this issue including one of Love-A-Bull’s board members. To view the article, click here.
