Support Dog Tethering Ban in New Brunswick!

Canada's New Brunswick province currently has no laws in place to restrict dog tethering (the practice of keeping dogs tied up outside). This means owners may leave their dogs tied out in their yards 24 hours a day, seven days a week, even overnight and in freezing winter temperatures.

The Nova Scotia government has drafted regulations to prohibit tethering dogs for over 12 hours a day, but there are currently no laws in place to enforce that.

Keeping dogs tethered outside all day and all night long in bad weather is not only cruel, it endangers the community. Neglected dogs are more likely to get frustrated and break loose, and may then attack innocent people and their pets. 

Owners who leave their dogs tethered outside 24/7 do not deserve to have pets. Please sign the petition to urge the New Brunswick government to pass a ban on overnight and long-term dog tethering before the weather gets cold!
