Hello, my name is (NAME) and I am from (CITY), (STATE).
I’m calling in regards to the increase in police violence towards family dogs – specifically (NAME A LOCAL INCIDENT OR MENTION A LOCAL CAMPAIGN).
Police officers are killing dogs and violating our civil liberties, and this problem is becoming a national issue. Many groups have already begun litigation to stop the violence in their own state. I’m calling to ask that our representatives develop a system to protect our communities from unjust police violence towards dogs, to train our police officers in non- lethal K-9 encounters, and to hold police officers accountable for injuring or killing a dog – especially the officers involved in the (NAME LOCAL INCIDENT OR LOCAL CAMPAIGN).
I believe that this system will help keep our community, our dogs, and our officers safe. Please tell my Senator to stand up for our civil liberties and to take action in protecting our beloved K-9 family members.
Thank you for your time.
