Why this petition matters


There are 25 000 registered dogs in Tauranga and WBOPDC.

If you have owned, currently own, may own in the future - or just know! - a good dog, please consider signing up on my page to change the way dogs are impounded by Tauranga City Council or WBOPDC.

Currently, if your dog is impounded and is going to stay there for some time, the conditions are far from satisfactory. Long term 'custody' dogs being prosecuted for a dog 'attack' live in a small concrete cell,no natural light, no bed, no toys, and most importantly - no exercise.

It doesn't have to be this way. I understand rate payers of those 25 000 registered dogs don't want to have to pay for a doggie-hotel. But the Councils could sub-contract or certify acceptable 'custody' options that won't cost rate payers but will allow impounded dogs to have adequate exercise and feel real grass under their feet. A win-win for the rate payers, owners and most importantly, man's best friend.

Please sign and pass on the petition; the more support this gets, the better chance that impounded dogs won't live like 'death row inmates.'
