Operation Barrel Dog

'

http://www.change.org/petitions/operation-barrel-dog

'

The so called barrel dogs are poor creatures that live chained, night and day. They don't get enough food or water, the only think they're given is just a poor shelter, that most of times consists of a rusty barrel, the barrell they're named after. They must stay there all the time, chained, no food, no water, under the sun, under the rain.

Saving Tess
'
start date: Feb. 26



Help save Tess. Tess is a German Shepherd who has captured our Hearts. Tess has been tied up outside since before Hurricane Sandy with no shelter, She howls all day and night according to a neighbor who alerted the media. The NJSPCA took the dog to their vet and said the dog was in good health but should be totally fine in two weeks this makes no sence. If the dog was in good health then why will she be better in two weeks? This dog was clearly neglected and returned to her neglectful owners. The only reason this dog was taken to the vet was because of the media and the outpouring of concern. Help us get Tess to a shelter who is wiling to find  her a good home where a family will treat her kindly and give her a warm dry bed and plenty of food , water and love. Please sign this petition.

Dogs (like people) are social animals, yet many dogs live empty lives chained or tethered outdoors. Tied-up outside, dogs become lonely, bored, and anxious, and they can develop aggressive behaviors. In many cases, the necks of chained dogs become raw

Signed - you shouldn't have a dog if you chain them. A chained dog should immediately send a signal to animal welfare that the dog should be removed to a place of safety. If chains were banned this would empower them to remove any dog found on a chain.

A good day for you too Ellen !


Here , the trees lost almost all their leaves. Winter is coming and that is awful for al the chained dogs. I saw a wonderful German organization that is building warm  shelter for dogs with a possibility to run , so the dogs are not chained anymore. Thats their first step to learn people to treat their dogs better, and it works. They work in a lot of European countries. Their website is only in German unfortunately.

Chaining Dogs
6 years ago
| permanent

Kept "out of sight, out of mind" in the back yard, chained dogs are often deprived of adequate food, water, and veterinary care—in addition to having their emotional and social needs completely ignored. Many are denied proper shelter and have nothing but an overturned trash bin or plastic barrel—or nothing at all—to shield them on freezing winter nights. Countless chained dogs have frozen to death during cold snaps or died of heatstroke on sweltering summer days.

Chained dogs are also totally vulnerable to other animals and cruel people, and many chained dogs have been stolen, set on fire, shot, stabbed, tortured, or poisoned by cruel passersby or neighbors who were annoyed by their barking.
