There is a dog in the property behind me who is kept out in all kinds of weather all night long from freezing rain to extreme heat. He has a dog house but just wines and barks sometimes all night. dogs are not designed to be out side in severe weather.
And there are dogs who are chained for their entire lives to one spot. This is cruel. lease read this and support the proposed legislation.
UNCHAIN PA DOGS
Kathleen Slagle has been a Dogs Deserve Better area representative of Delaware Water Gap in Pennsylvania for 5 years. As an area representative Slagle has been instrumental in recruiting volunteers, re-homing dogs and educating people on chained dogs. In 2009, she started the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Tethering, a group dedicated to educating the public and promoting legislation to end the widely tolerated practice of chaining dogs for life. Slagle has been the instrumental behind anti-tethering legislation since the 2005-2006 Legislation Session (HB 1911, HB 1065, HB 1254), the creation of unchainpadogs.com and the current anti-tethering legislation.
