13. Dear Representative Edwards,
14. I live in the City of Plantation. In my community, many of the local dog parks aren’t properly regulated and are filled with diseases and other risks, such as the Canine Flu. This can cause serious injury, illness, and could even lead to death for some of the animals in the parks.
16. Sometimes as a community, we can check and make sure every dog that enters the park has all their shots and vaccines. Also, if a dog has been kicked out of a dog park due to aggressive and violent behavior, other dog parks should be alerted and notified. This will ensure that these specific dogs cannot potentially harm other dogs or humans in the parks.
18. Thank you for taking the time to review the health issues within our community. I certainly hope that this problem can soon be rectified. Please let me know if i can assist in any way as i am eager for a nicer, safer, and especially healthier community where my dogs can safely play.
