List of Iowa Cities - BSL
Here is the most current list I have, Jade.
Iowa is such a hot bed of BSL....there may be many, many towns we know nothing about, but may have over zealous officials capable of actions we all dread everytime we travel with our pets. I live here and do not hear of BSL happenings often times due to the officials network, they tend to quietly pass BSL without any fuss.
This link is perhaps the scariest thing we have going for us here.
If cities have questions regarding the above or would like to receive some sample ordinances, please contact the League.
They urge BSL.........urghhhhh
My advice for anyone traveling INTO Iowa would be to Mapquest the route they will be taking and contact each community they will be passing through.
Have people keep in mind ALL of Benton County is BSL.
I have the majority of the ordinances for the listed towns if anyone wishes to have them to print off for thier travel should they need to go through specific towns. I always figure having hard copy to prove they may NOT confiscate (if it is NOT specified in their ordinance) is a good idea.
Feel free to pass this email along to those who may be traveling into our state.
This list may not reflect all towns with BSL. The towns I have listed are, to the best of my knowledge, correctly on this list.
