I am attempting to find out what the guidelines are as far as leaving a dog chained up in a yard overnight. I am talking about a Pit Bull that causes no disturbance by barking, but the nights are getting colder and Pits being short haired dogs are obviously not cold weather dogs. I'm wondering if there is a law that would protect any animal with (for lack of a better term) an owner abusing their animal by leaving it outdoors overnight --times? temps? Is there something that can be done? I've got no problem calling animal Control and I dont even give a damn if the low life knows its me who called, I just want to know if anyones aware of the guidelines of what I consider to be cruel and inhumane treatment of an animal.

SO...instead of posting here, CALL Animal Control. How would you like to be tied up to a tree outside?

Are you an ass? Why did I just ask you that? Of course you are! My question was related to what the guidelines are if anyone was aware of Einstein..Whens the last time YOU called any kind of county dept or board. You can get the run around and end up with no answer as is the usual for anything relating to govt and or assistance. I've already attempted the phone inquiry and gotten much in the way of either recordings or referred to call a different #. With all the Moronic things written about on these blogs I figured there just might be someone with some insider information as to what the guidelines are--and then I end hearing--not from someone with some clear info, but from a clown like you with a pussy cat as their avatar--Stifle yourself !! I guess I'' simply get stuck being transferred from one hillbilly dept after another unless someone with a clue throws me some facts.

Forget it--I got my own answer--NY State law states that regardless of the type of dog--short haired or not, as long as there is some type of shelter (dog house) a supply of water and fed once per day--it's legal..WTF? Who wrote these giudelines? Michael Vick? Maybe the law needs to be revised. Too bad for the abused animals-

Great, now you know the law. I guess when i said you should call it in to the Town instead of blogging about it makes me an ass in your opinion. Bite me!

People would much rather complain than act. If things actually got taken care of they would have to move on to something else to complain about.

That's the end of that issue, it's been resolved,but there's something everyone who intends to do the right thing should know--When you call the town to make such a complaint--they will of course ask you for your name and do not be at all surprised when they send an agent or IF they send an agent--That agent will certainly give your name to the person who is the subject of your complaint--I think this is their way of not getting any follow-up calls in the matter. So keep in mind an anonymous call may not get any action what-so-ever and if by chance you're angry enough about a situation and provide your personal info--It will certainly be given to the individual who was the initiator of the abuse--so plan on losing any rapport with that neighbor. Things are not handled in a manner which would be conducive to doing the right thing by an animal and or rectifying of a violation. Crookhaven? How appropriate !

I have called them and YES they do ask for your name and address. Whether they disclose that is unknown. Why not have the local civic group make the complaint for you if you want to remain anonymous?

Local Civic Group? What local Civic Groups? The point I'm making here is that I for one don't really have a big problem with giving my info,but folks should be aware of the fact that the agent showing up for said complaint is going to give the offender your name. Where then is the vail of annonyminity to open ones mouth and report the injustice being perpetrated against a defenseless animal? As far as I'm concerned I have no fear of the individuals involved--all I would attempt was to avoid an out and out confrontation which could very possibly escalate into a physical situation. Again, not a problem for me, but isn't the purpose of these agencies to resolve such injustices and be the prevailing administrators of dispensing protection and the laws on behalf of said animals? No, instead--the agents go out there and investigate while divulging private report info (totally unnessasarily with no other end result than causing a confrontation between 2 neighbors which could lead to violence between neighbors. Now you'll have the police involved and all because the agents do not use an ounce of brains or common sense. That is the point I'm making-look at it as if an elderly little old lady see's some jerk beating his animals in the yard--or maybe even beating his wife and kids---now let's say she knows she can make an anonymous call and maybe save whomever from continued violence--she'll make the call, but if she knows there's a chance that guy's gonna be told she made the call--then she'll probably remain silent and the abuse will just go on and on.Are you catching the point I'm making? I have no problem pushing someones face in for abusing a helpless animal, but if I don't have to be in the position to get that first hand involved--then why should I ? The point I've tried to make is that no-one should fear opening their mouth to the authority's for the sake of someones safety and the authority should take the reporters safety into consideration and simply do the job they are being paid to do and keep their information and comments in the office--not as a way of shooting the breeze with the offender of such acts !
