Petition text

The video of a a 4-year-old child from Bakersfield, California, attacked by a dog in the family driveway, but saved by his pet cat Tara has gone viral all over the web.

Everyone is amazed at the cat’s abilities to rescue his young owner. The Labrador / Chow mix escaped from across the street just as the neighbor was pulling out of his car out of the garage and ran straight to the boy. Luckily, the cat decided to step up. The boy is expected to make a full recovery.

The eight-month old dog has been taken to Bakersfield Animal Control, where he will be quarantined for 10 days before being put down.

We think euthanizing the dog is a harsh and unjust decision. He should be adopted out from A/C or should be taken by a Rescue organization, which is specialized in training dogs “with problems”. The dog just happened to be in a bad situation, that’s all. Please sign the petition and save this young dog from being destroyed! We have until May 23rd!
