My name is Kate, I am 24 years old and I own 2 very giddy spaniels, I have recently signed up to dog lost as a volunteer. The petition is for tougher sentencing for animal abuse, I have created this after reading yet another distressing story in my local newspaper and just thought I can’t sit back and cry anymore I want to at least try to help.
I need to reach 100,000 signatures for this petition to be heard in the House of
Commons posting the petition for this cause on your website could make a difference. My local newspaper have just picked u this petition and were going to be featured this week.
Despite last year’s Defra consultation on dangerous dogs, and assurances from Prime Minister David Cameron to discuss the topic, the Government has failed to address what the organisations all agree is inadequate legislation that does not adequately protect the public, worker safety and animal welfare.
The petition demands that the Government brings forward a Bill in the Queen’s Speech next year that consolidates and updates dog control legislation. It is hoped a new Bill would have a greater preventative effect by focussing on owner responsibility, give greater flexibility and discretion to enforcers and the courts, and enhance dog welfare.

More than 80 per cent of pet owners have a pet that is afraid of fireworks. Fireworks manufacturers need to accept their responsibilities in this and publicise pet safety information on packaging and on their websites. We, the undersigned, call on the Government to make this a mandatory requirement.”
