Dogs Need Fences(or a leash at least)
This petition had 175 supporters
I had new neighbors move in next door, they got two dogs that they intended to use as guard dogs, but they never put up a fence. I have begged the property owners to put up a fence, they have refused. I offered to pay for it or do it myself, they refused. I contacted animal control and to my surprise, I found out that Jersey City has no fence requirement for unattended dogs. My main concern is these dogs can and do jump into my backyard whenever they please. I have two small children, a 1 years old and a 3 year old. My fear is when these dogs are left outside and one of my children decides to go outside in their own backyard and gets attacked. I put up a fence on my property already but the dogs are chewing through it and knocking it down. I will have to put up another fence soon. I just want them to enclose their dogs.
People should not have to live in fear of dog attack on a constant basis. Fences should be required in Jersey City for large dogs.
