This petition is being established to create a unified voice against the inhumane, murderous, and discriminative New Jersey Bill A2401. The bill gives the state the right to mandate a fenced yard for medium to large dogs. It also gives the state the right to decide what animals cannot be publicly walked on a leash. 

When the owners cannot build a fence, they will be forced to pay a fine, or surrender their pets to the state to euthanized. 

Let's stand together to force the state officials for find less heinous, more proactive ways to avoid aggressive behavior as seen in the dogs depicted in the bills this legislature seeks to enforce against. 

Adding an income screening will allow the adoption agency or breeders to decide if the prospective owner can and will care for the animal properly. In turn, this also holds the agencies and breeders accountable for making better decisions on the prospective dog owners ability to be responsible for a pets behavior and we'll being. For example, a hungry dog won't guard food. A socialized dog learns boundaries. In contrast, a owner who cannot afford to care for themselves or their family properly cannot care for a dog properly. Dogs will become desperate for food, and will resort to guarding food when it's present. Do not adopt or sell a dog to people who do not meet income requirements. This is just an example of one way to proactively manage irresponsible dog ownership. The reactive bill A 2401 is discriminative and reactive. That is law making of years and lifetimes ago. The abundant data out there indicates this is not the right way to address dog attacks.
