The term ‘Save Our Savannahs’ was initially created as a tongue-in-cheek response to the ongoing hybrid bans that keep hitting different parts of the United States, snuck in with the exotic pet bans that are continuously introduced as pending legislation… Unfortunately, after viewing the bigger picture, perhaps the term ‘Save Our Savannahs’ isn’t as tongue in cheek as one might assume… There are a lot of states that do not permit ownership of Savannahs at all levels and there are also some states that do not permit Savannah ownership at all- even at the show level! For example- they are illegal in Georgia and Hawaii and in New York state, only F5s and below are permitted into the state.
Please view this pertinent article about Savannah cat ownership:
As owners of Savannahs- from the first generation down to the F7/F8 generations, we are proud of our cats. While they may share an exotic heritage from the wonderful African Serval- they are not wild cats. They are intelligent, funny, amazing, gorgeous cats- but they do not belong in a cage or behind glass walls. They are an integral part of thousands of families throughout the world and the Savannah popularity continues to grow.
Save Our Savannahs is not a political page. As much as we could easily rant and rave about the current situation, we have decided to limit all political talk to simply keeping readers up-to-date on pending legislation when we hear about it. Instead, we have chosen SoS to stand for itself as a photo and video essay blog. Look at the photos, view the videos and decide for yourself- are Savannahs family pets? Should this breed be banned in any state within this country that prides itself upon our members’ freedom? Or should Savannahs be free to be owned everywhere? Take a moment to look through our photos and our videos- and you decide!
