Section Twelve: Barking Dogs Facebook
The purpose of our Facebook page is not just to commiserate and share our stories, but also to organize, as we reach out to noise victims and responsible dog owners everywhere. We further seek to foster enforceable legislation and effective law enforcement. To that end, our goal is to inform lawmakers across the globe of the threat posed to the public health and safety, when statute and custom permit the noise of other people's barking dogs to be force-fed into the homes of the innocent, leaving them powerless to defend against the ensuing chaos.
