Pass a Virginia law to protect dogs in harsh weather

PETITION: Pass a Virginia Law to protect dogs in harsh weather conditions


TARGET: Virginia State House and Virginia State Senate Governor Ralph Northam


As recent extreme weather has made us all aware, it is extremely important to protect our pets indoors in these conditions. There is currently not a law in place to force pet owners in VA to bring their animals indoors in extreme weather conditions. This petition is asking that there be a law that forces pet owners to bring their household pets indoors when the temperature drops below 35 degrees and when it is above 85 degrees. There are numerous examples of pets being left outdoors in these conditions and unfortunately dying. There was basically no punishment for the owners, which is absolutely crazy. Please sign and help us send a message of change.

Here recently there have been total jerks posting videos about how much they hate dog owners and lovers and how much they deserve to get mauled to death and die and how dogs getting murdered is humane and how dogs deserve to die and so that really makes me sick and mad especially since I'm an animal lover and owner myself so decided to do something good for the poor doggies! by the way he's a youtuber called i hate dogs or as i like to call him King jerkface!

This petition might sound boring, but to a pet owner or an animal lover, it is 1 or more precious lives taken for them.
