Stop allowing animals to be towed away with vehicles!

On Monday, November 7, 2011 a couple found that their car was in the process of being towed for unknowingly parking in a time-restricted no parking zone in Portland, Oregon.  In the car was their 4 lb Maltese, Rosalie, unable to care for herself.  Had they not caught the towing in time, Rosalie would have been sent to impoundment with the car without adequate food or water.  Her owners would likely have not had enough time to retrieve her, along with the car, from the impound lot before closing time, leaving her alone all night.  No efforts were made to contact the owners, in a nearby restaurant, prior to towing the vehicle.  

Help protect the rights of animals by signing this petition to prohibit the towing of vehicles carrying pets!
