Pass a Virginia law requiring dog owners to keep their dogs inside in harsh temperatures

Law.png

Sign Petition

Legislation is greatly needed in the State of Virginia, requiring dog owners to keep their pets indoors once the temperature drops below 35 degrees, or exceeds 85 degrees. Currently, there is no protection for dogs left outside, and severe weather poses a fatal threat to these defenseless creatures.

Rainbow is a recent example:

On the morning of January 12, 2017, a dog was found frozen to death in Accomack County, Virginia.

Two men have were found to be responsible for the death of this dog when she was left outside in freezing cold temperatures. Her neck was bound by a chain that prevented her from reaching her flimsy un-insulated dog house, and she died an agonizing death, alone.

She was named posthumously named “Rainbow.”

Unfortunately, it is a common practice to leave dogs outside in extreme weather. These are just a FEW cases from Virginia:

Two Pit Bull Dogs Freeze to Death in Frederick County, VA

Owner gets second animal cruelty charge after pit bull dies from heat stroke in Henrico, VA

Two dogs die of heat stroke in Newport News, VA

Suffolk, VA woman charged with cruelty in dog death

Dog dies of excessive heat in Bristol, VA

Dog freezes to death in Accomack County, VA (Rainbow)

Dog Dies After Being Left in Hot Car Outside Virginia PetSmart

The general consensus is that dogs are not susceptible to harsh climates, and that their fur makes them resistant to such temperatures. This is untrue. To the contrary, dogs suffer a great deal in these conditions.

Numerous animal welfare organizations, including the ASPCA and The Humane Society of the United States, have urged pet owners to keep their animals inside during times of extreme and inclement weather that is life-threatening to animals left outside.

Recently, there have been several cases of people leaving their pets chained outside, day and night, in extreme weather. Many of these animals FROZE TO DEATH and there is NO LEGAL RECOURSE TO PROTECT THEM OR TO HOLD THEIR OWNERS ACCOUNTABLE!

We are appealing to you to help us protect our best friends!

Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser recently signed Emergency Legislation on February 21, 2017 to protect animals from harsh weather:
