To the city council of Dallas, Texas, for passing an amendment to further protect dogs who are tethered outside.
Many lawmakers in cities throughout the United States are supporting legislation to restrict or ban continuous dog tethering. This continuous practice negatively effects the physical and emotional well-being of our canine companions. According to a recent news article, the city council in Dallas, Texas, recently changed their current tethering law. The tethering law used to allow three hours of continuous tethering, now the new law requires owners to supervise their dogs while being tethered outside, and provide potable water and shelter for them. Anyone found guilty of not abiding by the new law, may face a fine up to $500.
