it's good in theory, and the law could be passed, but i'm afraid that even under normal circumstances it would be unenforceable, much less during an emergency such as a flood or storm. a better solution would be to organise neighborhood coalitions who would have a list of outdoor dogs and the means to rescue and shelter them under such conditions.

OMG...The insanity of people...They should chain the owners. Of course I signed! Thank you Dianne!

Will come back and sign under another E-Mail address also! This is a necessity, just shaking my head at people and their stupidity!

These people are just incredibly cruel or incredibly stupid. Or both. Definitely signed.

@Shadow Manypaths... it may be difficult to enforce but you have to start somewhere and at least try. Otherwise we might as well all give up.

There are groups against chained dogs period. I believe it should be banned all the time, this way you decrease the number of dogs that are chained. These dogs are often neglected ... not fed regularly, watered, no socialization, no vetting, chained dogs are more likely to bite ( can you blame them?) they are left out in all kinds of weather.. heat, cold, wet. Dogs are companion animals and are meant to be with their family.

Sending a Green Star is a simple way to say "Thank you"

You cannot currently send a star to Diane because you have done so within the last week.
