Please help us to stop the problem of people chaining dogs outside during the cold weather. It really happens, since I have rescued two dogs in this predicament while working for BONES.

If you will write a letter to Gov. Malloy at the state Capitol, 210 Capitol Avenur, Hartford CT 06106, or e-mail Gov. Malloy (go to his website on the Internet and you will find a place to send an email), or call his office at 860-566-4840 or 1-800-406-1527, Monday-Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., and tell him your love for animals and how much it may disturb you to find people are doing this terrible thing to living creatures.

If you know of other people who might make this contact, please urge them to help us.
