Change the Law to include Recognition Of Mental Cruelty to Household "Pets"

This petition had 570 supporters


The  imprisonment of Dogs who are kept locked up and made crazy in order to turn them into guard dogs is far too common in Australia. Dogs are pack animals, and to be kept in what amounts to Solitary Confinement is totally wrong. The law which does not recognise psychological abuse to animals, makes it impossible for these creatures to be helped in any way.  I live in a small street where the residents are collectively distressed by the ongoing howls from one such dog who is locked up in a garage for up to 20 hours per day, and spends his hours crying and flinging himself against the metal walls of the garage until he is exhausted, then beginning again. Have tried, Police, RSPCA, Council and even their Land Agents! Now is the time for a petition because all else has failed. This is only one example. Please pay attention to this request and be part of the lobby for change. Thank you.
