Alexandrea Ward started this petition to City of Panhandle Texas

As a person directly affected by others who chain/tether their pets, I’d like my community to come together and help these poor animals. The city of Amarillo and other satellite cities have regulations to prevent this.

Why should you care?

Tethered dogs may also suffer from irregular feedings, overturned water bowls, inadequate veterinary care and extreme temperatures. During snow storms, these dogs often have no access to shelter. During periods of extreme heat, they may not receive adequate water or protection from the sun. Owners who chain their dogs are less likely to clean the area of confinement, causing the dogs to eat and sleep in an area contaminated with urine and feces. What's more, because their often neurotic behavior makes them difficult to approach, chained dogs are rarely given even minimal affection. Tethered dogs may become "part of the scenery" and can be easily ignored by their owners.
