Vote YES on 2J: end Denver’s pit bull ban

On the November 3 ballot, Denver residents can end the city’s ban on pit bulls and instead enact a special breed restricted license for these dogs. Ballot measure 2J has seen its fair share of twists and turns to get in front of Denverites, and the Dumb Friends League is excited to support the measure.

In August, the Denver City Council voted unanimously to send a replacement of the pit bull ban to Denver voters. The latest version repeals the current ban and replaces it with a “pit bull probation” that would allow pit bull owners to keep their dogs in the city of Denver if they register them with animal control under a special breed license. Then, if the dog has no violations within a three-year period, they will just need to be registered as every other dog in Denver.

The campaign to pass the ballot initiative is beginning to take shape, and there are plenty of opportunities to get involved. For starters:

  • Reach out to friends and family to support the measure.
  • Visit the Denver Loves Dogs site to learn more.
  • Follow the League’s social media platforms to stay informed.

And, of course, vote YES on 2J in November! Then, visit one of our shelters to adopt your next pittie pal!
