Too many dogs spend their entire lifetime cruelly tethered, confined to a small radius where they live out their days in all kinds of weather, wondering what’s beyond, wondering what they did wrong, longing for human interaction that never comes.
Why do we sentence our “Best Friend” to years of entrapment with absolutely no quality of life?
Please visit and read this article by TheHumaneSociety.org for more on information on tethering, why it is cruel, and the negative effects caused by chaining our dogs outside.
A county ordinance banning all unsupervised tethering of dogs could end the suffering and torment of our companion animals. Support Smith County, Texas joining the numerous other compassionate, humane, pet-friendly cities and counties nationwide that have successfully enacted this ordinance.
