Anderson, South Carolina: Make Chaining Dogs Illegal!

435 Signatures Goal: 20,000

Chaining dogs should be illegal, simply because it is inhumane and a threat to the safety of the confined dog, other animals and humans! They get lonely and crave for human affection while exposed to extreme weather conditions. Pictured below are chained dogs that I have encountered in the County of Anderson, South Carolina long before I knew anything about animal rescue, laws or that I could possibly change it. All I knew was, these were innocent animals and they deserved so much more than a life on a chain.

Hannah Michelle Roberts » If you have any questions or concerns contact me at: hannahjamesbam@gmail.com I would like to see chaining of dogs illegal in the city/county of Anderson, South Carolina. Not only is it inhumane but dangerous for both animals and humans. "A dog kept chained alone in one spot for hours, days, months, or even years suffers immense psychological damage. Rarely does a chained or tethered dog receive sufficient care. Tethered dogs suffer from sporadic feedings, overturned water bowls, inadequate veterinary care, and extreme temperatures. During snow storms, these dogs often have no access to shelter. During periods of extreme heat, they may not receive adequate water or protection from the sun." (unchainyourdog.org)

    this is so cruel dogs die of overheating in hot weather. Their necks have almost caused decapitation. It must be banned completely.

    This is no way for a dog to live. Their lives are dreary to the end. They deserve better than to be kept at the end of a top for their whole lives

    I don't want chaining anywhere! These poor babies in the hot sun and the cold of winter. NO BEING SHOULD EVER HAVE TO SUFFER THROUGH THAT!
