Has Your Dog Been Discriminated Against in Housing Insurance?

David-taffet-EtFBxSdd-iw-unsplashAccording to the Animal Farm Foundation, your dog can be discriminated against because of breed:

The insurance industry uses arbitrary dog breed lists to deny homeowners and renters insurance coverage and discriminate against insurance consumers. 

People are unable to get insurance or must pay a higher premium because the insurance company deems their dog “dangerous” based solely on how it looks. These lists are not based in scientific research, nor are they based on a dog’s individual behavior.

For many, breed restrictions in housing insurance create a terrible choice: having a safe, affordable, and accessible home or separating from a beloved family member.

These restrictions do not simply run the very real risk of separating dogs from owners, they separate and traumatize families.
