Hidden in many counties, and in plain sight across North Carolina, you can still find dogs chained or tethered, with barely room to reach a water pail, without shelter, and unable to escape their own excrement. This is ANIMAL CRUELTY & NEGLECT! WHY? Why are we allowing pet owners to continue turning a blind eye to these acts of neglect? Leaving innocent animals in the elements, infested with fleas, ticks, worms, possibly sick, malnourished, barking for attention, disturbing the neighbors, at no fault of their own. This can be remedied so easily with tighter fines from each Counties Animal Control for anyone caught chaining a dog. For many counties right now, a dog need only have shelter, water, & food before a fine is issued. Fortunately, there ARE a few wonderful non-profit organizations in our State that volunteer to help families un-chain their dogs, no questions asked. BEYOND FENCES is one of those groups, started out of Durham, NC, now serving several counties. They volunteer, build fences at no cost to the families, as well as help provide people with supplies, and an understanding of flea & tick control, and wellness. However, these groups can't operate across the entire State. We need legislation about NO CHAINS!
