      Portland, OR

On Monday, November 7, 2011 a couple found that their car was in the process of being towed for unknowingly parking in a time-restricted no parking zone in Portland, Oregon.  In the car was their 4 lb Maltese, Rosalie, unable to care for herself.  Had they not caught the towing in time, Rosalie would have been sent to impoundment with the car without adequate food or water.  Her owners would likely have not had enough time to retrieve her, along with the car, from the impound lot before closing time, leaving her alone all night.  No efforts were made to contact the owners, in a nearby restaurant, prior to towing the vehicle.  

Help protect the rights of animals by signing this petition to prohibit the towing of vehicles carrying pets!

      Do not leave your companion in a car while you are in a restaurant~! Would you leave your baby in a car? No? An animal is every bit as helpless and defenceless as a baby, so do the right thing. Get a 'sitter' or stay at home. Oh, or if you are unable to do either, then do not acquire a companion animal.

      It is irresponsible of tow companies to take vehicles with animals inside, but it is also irresponsible of guardians to leave an animal inside. For the animal's sake, please prohibit the towing of vehicles that have ANY life form inside!
