A in central received a knock at their door last week before officials in their told them they had two weeks to get rid of their pet pit bull, the family told CNN on Sunday.

The village of Moreauville passed an ordinance banning vicious dogs, including pit bulls and rottweilers, and has threatened to take away those breeds from owners by Dec. 1 for “disposition” unless other arrangements are made, according to KALB, which originally reported the story.

One family is fighting to keep their pit , Zeus, whose O’Hara Owen says helps monitor the spasms she sometimes has at night as a result of a medical condition, Owen told CNN. A petition on MoveOn.org called “Save Zeus” had 77,600 signatures on Sunday (Nov. 23) morning, and a Facebook page had more than 14,000 likes.

Penn Lemoine, an alderman from the village about 40 miles southeast of Alexandria, told KALB the body adopted the ordinance after in response to residents’ complaints. He said public outcry could prompt aldermen to reconsider the ordinance.

Owen’s mother Joanna Armand told CNN Zeus is more like a family member than a .

“He’s been a brother to all of my kids, and he’s been a baby to me,” she said.
