Protect Dogs, Support Pennsylvania SB1435

September 16, 2010

From Animal Law Coalition & Care2

The Pennsylvania Senate Bill 1435 is an anti-tethering proposal that supports the rights and well-being of dogs. The bill was created to protect dogs who are often chained under extreme weather conditions — for long periods of times — left without food or water.

Six states are ahead of Pennsylvania in enforcing anti-tethering laws — California, Connecticut, Nevada, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia — but local animal groups are fighting hard to add Pennsylvania to the list.

The bill clearly states the conditions that are acceptable for the tethering of dogs — including proper collars, lengthy leashes and in distance of food, water and shade. If the bill is passed, any person who does not abide by the new tethering regulations may lose ownership of their dog, in addition to other punishments for animal cruelty.

Support SB1435 to ensure no more dogs are left chained under these life-threatening conditions.
