New York Housing Authority Bans Dog Breeds


The NYCHA is banning 27 dog breeds and any dog over 25 lbs from public housing. That’s a lot of dogs to exclude.  Residents who already have dogs that would fall under the ban, can keep them if they register them by May 1st using this form.

The ASPCA opposes the policy and any breed ban or extreme ban on weight.
