Animals can get cancer from second hand smoke the same way humans can.
We are finally seeing our smoking laws get tighter and as you may know, have just passed a new one that bans smoking in cars hat are carrying children.
Obviously, this is an extremely important issue, given the damage second hand smoke can do, but aren't we forgetting something? Animals get cancer too! AND they can get it from second hand smoke just like we can.
We need to enforce a car smoking ban when carrying animals. Not only is it for their welfare, but it also helps to reduce the number of pets euthanised because their owners cannot or WILL NOT pay for treatment of an illness they often cause.
Dogs don't smoke, they're smarter than that - allow them the chance to have a cancer free life by signing the petition to "Ban Smoking in Cars Carrying Animals".
The Ban Smoking in Cars Carrying Animals petition to Department of Health Australia was written by Sarah Maloney Apps and is in the category Animal Welfare at GoPetition.
