I did a lot of research and thinking before publishing this petition and I really want it to do well and exceed our goal of 1,000 signatures.  It really needs your help so if you haven't already, please sign it, and pass it around to others to sign.  It is a great petition with a lot of research  to back it up.  I can't wait to deliver it to its target.

Well, I am pretty happy today because I reached my goal of 8,000 Butterfly Credits because I really wanted to spend them getting training treats for a shelter dog.  That is what I have been working towards for awhile so its an accomplishment for me.  Also, I have created a new petition that I think will do really well.  It calls for authorities to pass and enforce tethering laws in their cities.  Alexandria City Council just passed an ordinance that prohibits dogs from being tethered for more than three hours in a 24 hour period.  I have high hopes for this petition.  I am just working my little but off to get as many signatures as I can.  I could really use some testomonials though on my site.  I only have two so if anyone is reading this and wants to give me one I would really appreaciate it. 

Sincerely,
Brittany Valdes-Pages

I read an article about Alexandria City Council passing an ordinance that prohibits the tethering of dogs for more than three hours in a 24 hour period.  After doing some research on the issue, this is a vital topic that needs attention.  By passing and enforcing tethering laws, authorities could help protect dogs and public safety.  Once research study done by The Center for Disease Control and Prevention said that dogs who are tethered are 2.8 more likely to attack than dogs who are not tethered.  I hope this petition gets the attention it deserves.
