    Theres a house like 2 minutes away from mine where i always ride my bike and walk and theres always a little dog who is always on a chain thats really small. Ive never seen it not outside and it looks kinda skinny. The man is really nice so i dont think hes abusing it or anything like that ive tried to ask him about it a couple of times but he never answers the door what should i do?

    Hey @Animalsrule123,

    I’m sorry to hear that your neighbor is chaining their dog. :( If the dog looks like he is in immediate danger please call the police and local animal control right away. Then call our 24 hour emergency line at 757-434-6285. If you ever suspect cruelty please contact our Cruelty Investigations Department at CIDInfo@peta.org and include as many details as possible (names, phone numbers, addresses, etc.).

    If the animal doesn’t look like he’s in immediate danger I would try speaking with the owner or leaving a polite note at his house. Offer to walk the dog or say you love dogs and was wondering if you could take him to the park every so often. Learn more here: http://www.peta2.com/blog/help-a-chained-dog-this-month/

    Remember, the best way to help chained dogs is to work with city or county legislators to ban chaining. Learn more about that here: http://www.peta.org/issues/companion-animals/chaining-ordinances.aspx

    Please e-mail me at saraw@peta2.com if you have any other questions. Thanks!
