Ban Cruel Dog Tethering Immediately

Chained-dog-by-EarvingCorona

Target: Todd Yates, Chairman of Davidson County’s Board of Commissioners

Goal: Ban dog tethering and severely punish owners who leave their dogs tied outside for long periods of time.

Countless dogs suffer from being chained outdoors for lengthy periods, sometimes their entire lives, even in extreme weather. These animals endure exposure to the elements as well as loneliness, frustration, and wounds caused by their tether. Yet this practice remains legal in Davidson County, NC. Neighboring counties have already begun to issue citations for dog tethering, but Davidson County continues to lag behind, according to local activists.

Not only do chained dogs suffer from weather conditions, isolation, and poor care, keeping them tied up can make them frustrated and aggressive, posing a risk to humans and other animals. County officials are considering eventually adopting an ordinance related to tethering, but this is not enough, as countless dogs continue to suffer due to being chained outdoors.

Sign this petition urging authorities to immediately ban dog tethering in the county, as well as introduce harsh punishments for people guilty of leaving their dogs chained outdoors for long periods of time.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Commissioner Yates,

Dogs continue to suffer in Davidson County as no action has yet been taken to ban dog tethering. Chained outdoors for long periods of time, and sometimes for their entire lives, these animals suffer from exposure, loneliness, frustration and lack of care. This poor treatment and isolation can often make dogs aggressive, posing a threat to humans.

Please take urgent steps to ban dog tethering and introduce legislation implementing harsh punishment for owners found guilty of leaving their dogs chained outdoors for long periods of time. This is a matter of urgency, as countless dogs continue to endure this cruel treatment.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  6. Cynthia Gannon says:

    Really I wonder why these ill educated nitwits even bother to have dogs at all. It’s always the same types of ignorant people who do this. Shame that idiots procreate, don’t look after their kids, and keep their dogs outside. Then come the animal abusers and the outside dogs have no protection and are at risk of even worse than neglect.

  7. Dogs are most worthy living feeling creatures. They must not be tethered. We demand that this cruel practice end, now!

  8. I have never been able to understand the reason for tethering dogs!
    Surely if it’s for security it would make more sense to have the dog inside the house for protection, anybody could get passed a tethered dog!

    Make friends with your dogs love them and they will love and look after you!

  10. Sorry about duplicate, there seems to be something wrong with site!

  11. Stricter animal protections laws are needed accross this nation. So far in researching state laws against animal abuse Colorado has the strictest but NOWHERE are they adequate in protecting animals! We need a national registry for animal abusers so they cant get orhave animals and calling animal abuse what it is, a FELONY! Not a misdemeanor!! These are innocent, sentient spiritual beings put here to teach humans spiritual lessons!! People who abuse, neglect and suffer innocent animals deserve prison! Heres an idea!! lets get the marijuana smokers out of our prisons, and lock up animal abusing psychopaths instead!! Sound reasonable??! This makes me furious!!!!😭
