Dogs cannot stay or walk anymore in the downtown area of Eugene, Oregon.

Sign the petition to have this absurd ban immediately lifted and Eugene transformed into a city that welcomes everyone.
There is no way to humanely kill an animal who doesn’t want to die.

“He that takes truth for his guide, and duty for his end, may safely trust to God’s providence to lead him aright.” - Blaise Pascal. "There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" – George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. We live in a “post-truth” world.

"The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." – George Orwell “There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” ― Soren Kierkegaard
