Make Leaving Your Dogs In A Hot Vehicle Illegal! #keepdogscool

Many people are enjoying this heatwave, but the sweltering summer heat poses a huge risk for dogs who are left in baking hot cars. It’s dangerous, it can kill them, and it has to stop - so I’m calling on the government to make it illegal to leave dogs in hot cars. I work at a pet shop and I have four dogs of my own. While at work I keep hearing from customers who’ve seen dogs left in dangerously hot vehicles during this heatwave. A car can become as hot as an oven very quickly, even when it doesn’t feel that warm. And leaving a window open or parking in the shade doesn’t make much difference. When it’s 22 degrees outside, in a car it can reach an unbearable 47 degrees within the hour. Many of the offenders get off with just a warning. This is because you can only get convicted under the 2006 Animal Welfare Act if your dog dies or falls ill from being left in a car. This means that dogs up and down the country are being tortured time and again, with no consequences for the owner. If it’s made illegal to leave a dog in a hot car, it will send out a clear message, act as a strong deterrent and help save many vulnerable dogs from unnecessary distress and death. The new law should also be signposted in car parks to help make dog owners aware and deter them from breaking the law. The heatwave is set to continue so we need as many signatures as possible to change the law and save dogs’ lives! Please sign!

Petition to UK Parliament, Michael Gove

End Breed Specific Legislation - Help bring our dogs home

Our two dogs Rocky and Beau were taken from our family home on the 11th June under the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991. We haven’t been able to see them since, they could be taken away for good and there is a chance they will be put down. There have been no complaints about them being vicious or harmful in anyway. They were taken away because they look like a type known as a Pit Bull Terrier, which is a banned breed in the UK. They are gentle, friendly and loving that’s why I’m calling for them to be brought home and for the legislation that put them there to be abolished. There are 4 breeds banned in the UK. If you care for them they can be as loving and gentle as any other breed. That’s why in countries like Italy, they abolished breed specific legislation and instead, owners are responsible for making sure their dogs pose no threat to others. Please help us by signing this petition not only to get our Rocky and Beau home safely but to save the lives of many others that cruelly fall under this legislation. When our dogs were taken, we did not know where they had been taken, how they were being looked after and have no point of contact for them. This is the most excruciating waiting game and we are extremely concerned for their welfare. It is not the breed that make a dog dangerous it is the way they are brought up. We love our dogs like they are humans and they love us back equally. Please sign and help.

Thane Region Mumbai - High Alert : WARNING WARNING WARNING, PLEASE SHARE TO SAVE YOUR AREA DOGS HEAR THE CORRUPTION AND DOG KILLER VOICE Society / Street dogs are getting killed in TMC (Thane Municipal Corporation) in the name of steralisation of dogs, We ( Salim & Sonali Waghmare) have exposed the vet Satish Patil. who is working with some "We team Organisation" TMC have given contract to them for steralisation of dogs, to run ABC program, where the dogs are getting operated and released next day on the road without healing stitches. As per Vet Satish Patil, this is the policy of the NGO where they have to released the dog next day and not to follow ABC 2001 Program rule, where the law says that the dog should be kept for 5 to 7 days for post operative care or until the dog is healed. The ABC rule 2001 is clearly violated and ignored, just because they want to empty the cages to fill more dogs, so more dogs more money in less time. The dog is not given chance to heal & recover before it is released on road. This incident came in to highlight because my activist Sonali Waghmare used to feed this dog and was taking care since birth, the healthy male dog was just 8 months old and it got killed just because it was released early on road that is next day, whereas the dog should be kept for more 5 to 7 days. We have approached police and have done legal formalities from Panchnama to Postmortem, Very Soon we will file Fir and will see to it that the culprits should be punished soon. The eligibility and recognition of this Organisation is Doubtful, we are investigating the matter and soon will approach to Municipal Commissioner and AWBI for the same, and will report the incident to them and will ask them to stop the ABC program until the protocol of ABC rule 2001 is followed. As Per Audio Statement Vet Satish Patil blamed his senior Dr. Chariar that on his instruction the dog is released next day and this protocol has to be followed. TMC Dr. tried to manipulate the case by requesting us that they will do the Postmortem without police interference, but we straightaway rejected their offer, and we took action through police as per law. Listen to the Audio of Vet Satish Patil who clearly and confidently accept his crime and also hear the audio where TMC is trying to manipulate the case by giving offers like they will do PM. Please don't allow TMC to take your street/ Society dogs for butcher. Protect your dogs and show them this Post and Audio Evidence and asked them that on what basis they are picking up dogs.

Let milo come home!

Milo is a 3 and a half year old staffy x shar pei he is my best friend we have been through so much together. 2 months ago milo bit our builder on the arm and yes he bite was pretty bad, however the builder was off work for 4 weeks and we paid him the money for the time he would be off. The police came round a week after to see what had happened at this time milo went to stay with my grandad as we still had builders around our house and we didn't want this to happen again, milo has never done anything like this he was nervous and scared because the builder was talking and waking his hands around he then got up out of his seat a bit quickly and shook my boyfriends hand at the point milo had come out from my boyfriends legs and latched on to his arm. Anyway the police came round and was happy the dog had been taken away while people were still on site he said he was been in touch. Today 8 weeks later 4 police cars turn up at our house with no warning and no time to say goodbye to milo he was put in a police car and taken off. They told us that because of the law change even tho it had happened in his own home they now have the right to take us to court and take milo. We are petitioning for our milo because he's not just a dog he's part of our family and has been for the last 3 and a  half years. He make one mistake because he was nervous and its unfair for him to just be taken anyway with us waiting for someone to make a decision on whether his life is "destroyed" or not.His favourite thing is running around in the garden with his ball. If your sat inside he will bring it in and drop it right next to you so you would have to throw it for him he does this nearly all day everyday. He would be grateful for anyone who signs this and anyone who has a dog especially a staffy would hopefully understand. Thank you
