Chaining up a dog 24/7 is STILL LEGAL IN AUSTRALIA! Help give these beautiful dogs a voice

I was so horrified when I found out that in Australia, regardless of the weather conditions, dogs are legally allowed to be chained up outside 24 hours a day, everyday. Can you imagine your little fur baby being chained up outside, with limited movement. It would be so upsetting for your pet dog to be left alone and chained up, in 41 degree days, and weather as low as 6 degrees at night!
This is simply unacceptable!!! Dogs deserve better homes! All they want is love and approval from their owners. Many dogs have developed infections from rusted chains around their necks and small dogs whose chains are heavier than they are and cannot support their own heads anymore.
The Animal Welfare Act has not been reviewed nor updated since 2002, and we think it's about time The Hon Dean Nalder MLC- Minister for Agriculture and Food in WA does something about this. We ask that he please work with Animals Australia and Peta to ensure these poor puppies are taken from homes they're obviously not welcomed and nurtured in. They should be given the right to new homes where they will be loved and looked after as part of the family, and not seen as an inconvenience.
