Thanks, Audrey, for the announcement!

At this Thanksgiving time, we give thanks to Cincinnati City Council for removing the pit bull ban via a vote on Wednesday, November 24, in favor of a less breed-specific law targetting dogs based on their actions, not their breed. The new law goes into effect in 90 days, giving pit bull owners time to register their dogs.
