North Carolina continues to have an image problem. It is still considered to be a backwards, poor, ignorant and uneducated state. This image can be changed and should be changed. When visitors and retirees come to Henderson County or Buncombe County or other NC Counties they see the ugliest and worst of the state when they see chained dogs. My real estate agent has lost a number of wealthy clients because of the view of dogs on chains. My spouse and I almost did not move back to WNC because HE was not going to live with this situation. IF you see a dog on a chain that is skinny, looks abused, neglected or you just want the Police or Sheriff to do a "Welfare Check" on the dog, CALL THEM. They are required to check on the dog. If they do not check on the dog, continue to call and insist that they deal with the issue. Remember: YOU PAY THEM TO DO THEIR JOB - MAKE THEM DO THEIR JOB. Get Dogs off the Chain -

For information on getting dogs off the chain or helping a dog to be fed, have its shelter insulated with hay or cedar chips - see www.OffTheChainNC.org . This organization is working to get laws enacted in Hendersonville, North Carolina and Henderson County, North Carolina to stop this inhumane, cruel treatment of dogs. IF you care about dogs then call the Hendersonville Police or Henderson County Sheriff and get them to go and deal with a bad situation. Note that YOU do not have to make the decision if a law has been broken or a dog must be removed because of neglect or abuse - that is the job of the Police or Sheriff - WE pay them to do their job, this IS their job. Call them and keep calling them. OffTheChain.org

Thank you Ms. Smith. It restores my faith in humanity a little when I see people who still try and help in this world.

It does not matter to me what tourists think. What matters is these poor dogs on chains.So sad. Why is it not against the law?

Carol: I agree 1000%. It is about the dogs first and foremost. But, the City Council in Hendersonville, NC and the County of Henderson do not seem to care about dogs. What these people care about is MONEY and bringing in tourist money and retiree money. That being the case, I must alert THOSE idiots that a chained dog is a major turn-off to the MONEY they seek. I am a fervent dog and cat lover - so dogs and cats are first. MY six dogs are in the house and in our three beds bumped together. My cats are house cats never to go outside, and they don't want to either (they were thrown from a truck and one from a car). But to get the IDIOTS at the City of Hendersonville NC and Henderson County to do the right thing, one must appeal to their criteria of import.
Carol: Please hit www.OffTheChainNC.org and see what you can do to help push laws at the STATE level banning Dog Chaining/Tethering. WE ALL must push and get the STATE of North Carolina to act on behalf of dogs and cats. Agree with you and need your help. Thanks!

See comment below. Agree with you completely but those who restrict any positive changes to dog abuse laws are driven by money. Maybe someone can buy them...

It's not against the law because the people have not spoken to their city, county, council and police stations. Apparently, Jeff Collis the city council representative stated in a fox news interview that
Hendersonville has no grassroots support as did Ashville, NC. Once again the silent will remain
silent.

Mary,

Thank you for your kind reply. It is sad to think that anyone would stoop so low as to have a 'threat to tourism' as their only motive to save these poor chained dogs.

However, it is a sad world..and 'money rules the world'. I suppose as you are pointing out, we need to do whatever it takes to stop this animal abuse.

I will def. go to the link you posted. I wonder if we photographed as many of these dogs as we can, that we could help people see?

I have tried for many years to educate bird owners of the 'mental' abuse to constantly caged birds. They are also victims.

What can I do to help?

Thanks, Carol

GREAT! Use all this money to save some skinny dog that should probably be put down because its OWNER doesn't take good care of it and it isn't pretty.
But let's ignore the skinny little kid being dragged around WalMart by some adult assumed to be a caring parent.
Let's use the cops' time & budgets to take care of animals and forget the 4 year old who just died in the back of the car.
Let's use 3 or 4 times the money to adopt children from other parts of the world and allow a child to remain in foster care in the U.S. because he/she is too old or too damaged to be taken in by permanent parents.
I don't want to see the chained dogs - I don't want to see your purse dogs either. Or that thing that looks like a rat sitting on your lap while you're driving and talking on the phone.
I don't want to see you walking your dog in my neighborhood and letting it pee & poop on my yard or flowers OR EVEN DOWNTOWN where you allow it to use every little tree well in the sidewalk, without bothering to scoop.
If you see something you don't like,(1) take steps to fix it or (2) look away, but keep your mouth shut about throwing tax dollars at it.

Especially you summer people who claim to live here less than 6 mos & 1 day so you don't pay much in taxes here to start with, but I see you at the supermarket every month.

If you come to my house at the right time. You will see my dog on his chain. He is on it several times a day. If he is out in the yard he is on it. Why should that be illegal? I understand that a chain is not a permanent home for any animal. However if a chain is used correctly I see no problem in it.

Thanks for the tip: Northerners have brought money to this inbred state. YOU PEOPLE would be eating dirt still and living in shacks still (wait, you still do), were in not for Northern money. Like eating? Bet you do, since most of you Southerners are fat and stupid. Keep that ignorant trap shut and do what the Northerner with the money tell you to do. Is your sister really your mother? Bet she is. Shame you went and had a kid with your mother/sister. Seems common round these parts.

I thought she had a heart, until she spewed nothing but hatred towards the people that live in this area. While I can understand her not agreeing with what someone said, she didn't have to spread hate. Not everyone is fat, imbred and dumb if they live here. Hell, she's here!

Agree, NC needs to enact laws that will prevent dogs from being tied out all day, or even longer. Other states in this country have such laws although they are hardly necessary these days as people tend to treat their animals much better in other places. This very backwards and inhumane treatment is hardly seen outside of this state. It is a very shocking thing for people who come from other regions in the US and it does reflect the image that many hold of North Carolinians and Southerners in general as being backwards and ignorant.
