U.S. Anti-Tethering Legislation By State

The State of Connecticut is Currently Lobbying for
Laws Against Tethering Dogs for Life:

Connecticut Residents:

UPDATE 6/11/10

We are happy to report that last week, Governor Jodi Rell signed the anti-tethering/chaining bill (SB 274) into state law. Please visit the ASPCA Advocacy Center to send a short email to Governor Rell’s office thanking her for supporting and signing SB 274. The new law, Public Act No. 10-100, goes into effect on October 1.

Public Act No. 10-100—formerly SB 274—will prohibit the dangerous and inhumane chaining/tethering of dogs. The new law goes into effect on October 1. Read it here.
