I signed the electronic petition to give St. Albans dogs the same protection from cruel tethering that the City of Huntington gave their dogs 4 years ago. You can sign the petition, too. Click this link: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/318/410/863/stop-tethering-dogs-in-st-albans-wv/#next_action
Cities all over the United States and Canada are enacting city ordinances that protect dogs from being tethered outside without access to food, water, shelter and companionship. Tethered dogs live miserable, lonely lives.
We're asking St. Albans to adopt the Huntington law because it is simple and clear. Unlike the Kanawha County "Linz Law" which is riddled with exceptions and loopholes, the Huntington law makes it easy for law enforcement to see at a glance if the law is being violated.
The Huntington law reads: "It shall be unlawful for any owner or other person controlling or possessing any dog to tether a dog outdoors without direct supervision of the animal's guardian."
