Pet Dog Welfare Petition


We, the undersigned, seek to open the dialogue on the welfare of dogs left outdoors in extreme cold weather conditions.

In regards to leaving dogs out in the cold weather for prolonged periods of time, the current municipal by-laws and provincial laws do not require pet owners to provide much more humanity to dogs than an "adequate" insulated shelter/dog house facing away from the prevailing winds and a water bowl. For details (http://www.ospcablog.ca/?p=4706)

The undersigned call for amended by-laws necessary to protect dogs from being left outside in frigid temperatures.

We the undersigned stand firm that it is cruel and inhumane for dogs to be outside in extreme weather conditions, both hot and cold.

We, the undersigned, request Windsor City Council, to review, discuss, and open the community dialogue to specifically address when and how dogs may be kept outside during specific weather conditions and periods of time.Currently, "common language in laws across the US is that dogs cannot be left outside for a prolonged period of time if it is colder than -1 degree Celsius or hotter than 30 degrees Celsius". (San Grewal, Urban Affairs Reporter,Jan 23, 2014).

Similar language in the municipal by-laws of Windsor, Ontario addressing more humane standards is necessary and ought to be brought to the forefront of discussion in order to protect and advocate for the welfare of pet animals.

    Dogs are family members and must not be kept alone outside all the time. They need to be socialized within the family and society in order to make them safe community members.

    Pets get cold like we do. There should be stricter laws to protect animals from this type of harsh neglect. You wouldn't leave a child in the extreme cold /heat, so why do that to the furry member of your family?

    No animal should be left out in extreme weather conditions, I would not leave any member of my family out in the cold!
