Driven to Bark! Sign the Petitition

Every year, countless dogs die in cars due to extreme temperatures. Despite this, only 15 states have statutes that specifically prohibit leaving an animal unattended in a confined vehicle. We believe this is a national issue – and that animals need a stronger voice and stronger protection. That’s why we're proud to stand with Petplan Pet Insurance in petitioning the Obama Administration to encourage all states to enact laws prohibiting animals from being left unattended in cars during dangerously hot or cold temperatures.

If 100,000 people sign the petition in 30 days, we get our paws in the door of The White House, potentially paving the way to save the countless numbers of animals who die in hot or cold cars every single year.
