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.

Humans do a terrible job of protecting those that can't protect themselves therefore we need STRONG laws to attempt to force what should come naturally.
