NY Insurance law change — Attn Dog Owners

NY A3952 is designed to amend current state law on insurance.  The intention is to prohibit insurers from denying insurance, or charging higher rates, to dog owners based on the breed of the dog.  The act was written to allow insurers to deny or charger higher rates to the owners of dangerous dogs, but does not allow that designation for no other reason than the dog’s breed.

An additional write up from Stop BSL.

If you live in NY and own a dog please consider letting the State Senate know what you think of the law!
