Mothers Against Dog Chaining Demo in South Carolina June
13, 2005 garnered much local press, 3 TV stations, as well as newspaper
articles before and after the event. The Associated Press picked
up the initial article, which ran nationwide. A local breeder and
another man turned out in opposition...We totalled 15 people for
the demonstration, would it were 10 times that many!
Sinclair, mother of Makayla Sinclair and co-leader of the Mothers
Against Dog Chaining initiative, spoke very clearly to the need
for more and better laws to protect both our children and our dogs,
as well as the need for more socialization. She brought her new
baby girl, Logan, who won hearts and minds.
on Fox News from the day of Makayla' death was heartbreaking, anyone
who watched it could not help but be awestruck at Crystal's resilience
to stand now against the chaining of dogs in order to keep others
from suffering the same fate as Makayla did.
and Christine, neighbors and friends of Isaiah Smith and his mother,
turned out to help with the demonstration, speaking tearfully of
the loss of Isaiah and the hardship it's created for his family
and the neighborhood. They are firmly against chaining of dogs and
the resulting tragedies that can occur.
thanks to Speak
for Animals founder Susan Bufano and her Chained Dog
Campaign manager Stephanie Arnold (the two yellow shirts left and
center) for the help they provided in getting the word out, getting
the permit, and introducing us to the chair of the County Commissioners.
We could not have done it without them! Also a big thanks to everyone
who came out, we're very grateful for the support.
