ACTION ALERT: End Dog Tethering in Front Yards!!

It is dangerous and cruel to keep a dog tethered in a front yard unattended. Dogs that spend their lives on chains often become neurotic, aggressive and pathologically protective of the patch of dirt where they spend their lives. Frustrated and un-social

Signed, thank-you Simone[ Tethering,chaining, no matter what you call it it is wrong!!! It is unsafe for the animal. it is cruel, they need love and human contact! If you can't let your dog in your home ,then don't own one ,or at least make it safe for them, and give them some human contact as well!!!!!!!

signed the petition but i feel the petition should have been against tethering dogs at all. if they are going to be tethered it should not be for more than 4 hours at a time. it doesnt matter whether a dog is in the front, side or backyard. no dog should be left neglected and alone and tethered indefinetely
