Chaining Dogs Kills ThemSenate Bill 1738 in Florida could help stop the brutal acts of chaining dogs to die in hurricanes.

“If passed, leaving companion animals restrained outdoors during natural disasters would be considered an act of animal cruelty under state law. The crime, classified as a first-degree misdemeanor, could mean a fine of up to $5000 or a year in jail.

Countless forgotten animals died during Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Michael in just the past few years. We cannot let more furry family members become a tragic statistic.

“Tethering them up during disasters is like sentencing them to death,” said Aakash Patel, Tampa, Florida, resident evacuated prior to Hurricane Irma, to AccuWeather.”
