PA—Changes to the Dog Law
Sponsor(s): Rep. James Casorio
ASPCA Position: Support
Action Needed: Send a letter to your representative urging him or her to support and cosponsor Rep. Casorio’s bill to amend the Pennsylvania Dog Law.

Pennsylvania’s puppy mill industry recently garnered national attention when some of the state’s large-scale breeding kennels were featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show. Legislation that will help puppy mill dogs by amending the Pennsylvania Dog Law will soon be introduced by Rep. James Casorio in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.

Passage of Rep. Casorio’s bill is vital if Pennsylvania is to improve conditions for dogs kept in commercial kennels and put an end to the state’s reputation as the “Puppy Mill Capital of the East.”

While you’re there, please take advantage of our easy-to-use letter-sending system to email your representative in the Pennsylvania House, urging him or her to support and cosponsor the bill.

Right now, Congress is considering the Clean Water Restoration Act, important legislation that clarifies that federal safeguards against water pollution must protect all waters of the United States. 

Earlier this week, the U.S. Senate held an important hearing on this bill, and the House of Representatives will hold a hearing April 16.

Now is the time to tell Congress to stand up for clean water and support the Clean Water Restoration Act!

The Clean Water Act cannot work if half of the streams, rivers, and wetlands across the country are left out of the law's protective scope.


But there is still hope
to protect our waters.  The Clean Water Restoration Act will shore up clean water protections and ensure that the original intent of the Clean Water Act is honored. More than 175 members of the House of Representatives are co-sponsoring this bill, and 21 Senators are co-sponsoring companion legislation in the Senate.


The momentum is on our side.
Now is the time to tell your congressperson that you support their efforts to stand up for clean water by supporting the Clean Water Restoration Act -- a strong and sensible vehicle for ensuring the protection of our most precious natural resource.

Sample letter and emails follow.

Very soon, the city of Miami, which is in Miami-Dade County, will be voting on an ordinance to restrict dog tethering. This is important legislation that must be passed. Please email city of Miami officials asking them to pass this anti-tethering ordinance.

Emails for city of Miami officials:

mannydiaz@ci.miami.fl.us, agonzalez@ci.miami.fl.us, msarnoff@miamigov.com, jsanchez@ci.miami.fl.us, tregalado@ci.miami.fl.us, MSpence@ci.miami.fl.us

Sample letter:

Dear City of Miami Officials:

I understand you will soon be voting on an ordinance that restricts tethering dogs in your city. This is important legislation that should be passed. Miami wants to be known as a glamorous and fun tourist destination. A dog suffering on a chain in the hot tropical sun tarnishes this image. The ordinance imposes humane conditions for tethering, including requiring people to be outside when their dog is chained.

The evidence demonstrates why chaining is cruel and inhumane, often making "vicious monsters" out of otherwise gentle and social animals. Dogs are social animals who instinctively want to be part of a group or pack. Leaving dogs chained outside makes them aggressive. The Center for Disease Control reported that chained dogs are 2.8 times more likely to bite. Children have been injured or killed by going into a chained dog's area, or by a dog who has broken free from a chain. A dog loose in neighborhoods could be one who was made aggressive by chaining.

Tethered dogs are easy targets for attacks by other animals. They are killed or injured by extremes in weather, poisoned by humans, and made sick from animal feces or bird droppings. In many cases, the necks of chained dogs become raw and covered with sores from the dogs' constant yanking and straining to escape confinement. Dogs have been found with collars embedded in their necks.

Many other places protect children and dogs by having tethering ordinances, including Fort Worth, St. Louis, Washington DC, Fort Lauderdale, Dania Beach, Hollywood, FL, Macon, Georgia and the entire States of California, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia and Connecticut. The city of Miami should pass one, too.

Sincerely,
