THLN Humane Tethering Bill

About This Video:

THLN has drafted a bill it will lobby to pass into law in the 2015 Texas lawmaking session.  The bill will ban tethering of dogs via heavy chains.  It will also require that dogs have proper (and dry) shelter, easy access to food and water, a minimum tether length, a properly-fitted and comfortable collar, and swiveling tether hinges on each end of the tether to prevent entanglement.  Lastly, the bill will grant law enforcement and animal control officers the ability to issue citations, fines, and ultimately remove the animal if the infractions are not corrected.
