We thought you might be interested in this notice from Best Friends Animal Society (via Battery Park City Dogs) regarding pending NYS legislation to help dog owners avoid having homeowners and renters insurance cancelled because the insurance company thinks the homeowner’s or renter’s dog breed is “unacceptable.”
You can help by contacting the offices of your state senator and assembly member and let them know you support Senate Bill 4822.. If you live in Battery Park City or elsewhere in Lower Manhattan, your state senator is Senator Daniel Squadron. If you live in Northern BPC or Tribeca, your assembly member is Deborah Glick; if you live in Southern BPC (including Gateway) or the Financial District, your assembly member is Speaker Sheldon Silver.
