Illinois: Stop Inhumane Tethering of Dogs
Great news! Legislation (S.B. 2580) to protect chained dogs in Illinois has passed the Senate and will soon be considered in the Illinois House.
Dogs are naturally social beings who thrive on interaction with human beings and other animals. An otherwise friendly and docile dog, when kept continuously chained (or tethered), can become very aggressive. A chained dog, unable to take flight, often feels forced to fight, attacking any unfamiliar animal or person. Dogs have even been found with collars embedded in their necks, the result of years of neglect at the end of a chain.
