Dogs (like people) are social animals, yet more than 200,000 dogs live empty lives chained or tethered outdoors. This is currently happening in the Town of Wake Forest. Tied-up outside, dogs become lonely, bored, and anxious, and they can develop aggressive behaviors.

Dog tethering is not just an animal cruelty concern, but is also a public safety and property value concern.

Studies show that dogs are made aggressive & territorial by chaining them, making them far more likely to attack if they break loose. According to the American Humane Association chained dogs are 2.8 times more likely to bite and approximately 25% of fatal dog attacks were from chained dogs.

Our community leaders have sworn to protect Citizens. By confronting and resolving this issue of dog containment in a humane and acceptable way that also protects the animals.

Your signature matters and can make a difference! Please support this petition to BAN TETHERING AND CHAINING OF DOGS IN THE TOWN OF WAKE FOREST!

An ordinance currently exists in Rolesville and Raleigh to ban chained dogs, but not Wake Forest. This has been verified.

Please, in order for this to be considered as valid, we are asking only residents of the Town of Wake Forest sign this petition. Thank you for your support!
