Why this petition matters

Started by cynthia swartz

Because.....we lost Tubby to one of  these crates... we thought she was safe in there but she was not and your dog is not either.  Please be aware... these crates can hurt or kill your dog.. they are not safe and you should not use a wire crate to crate your dog. 

Tubby was not a pet.. she was part of the family.  She was in the family photos, she got dinner brought home to her, she slept on the bed or next to it, she was always right beside us.  She loved us as much as we loved her.

Tubby was 11, she was getting older and had some anxiety issues due to her age.  She got upset when she was left home alone so we wanted to keep her safe and remembered her crate.  I had used it when she was little to crate train her... she did feel safe in there and was happy to go inside when no one was home, she would walk into it on her own and even sometimes just to lay down.  She was not kept in that crate and she never ever tried to get out of it, she was not trying to escape the day she was hurt, she was only trying to scratch an itch but her teeth got caught in those wires and when she was stuck she paniced, she twisted herself to free herself and broke her jaws. She was too badly injured to survive.. she had to be put down and in honor of Tubby we need to tell the world so no family and NO dog will ever have to go thru this.  It is preventable and people need to know.... please do not use a wire crate to crate your dog.... please tell everyone u know.. you could save a dog from this horrific pain and injury.

Dogs are getting their "teeth" stuck in them and "braking their jaws", some do survive and some do not but it is horrific and should never happen!!  It happens because people do not know... these crates are marketed as "safe" for your pet when they are not! Please help......
