Pet Lovers: End 24/7 Tethering of Dogs

End 24/7 Tethering of Dogs in Pennsylvania

Take action to help pass SB 373

Senator Richard Alloway + 18 co-sponsors have introduced SB 373. Please call, write, e-mail, or uses social media to contact your State Senator to request their support of SB 373. Your message can be short, stating simply “I am a constituent – please support SB 373, the inclement weather/anti-tethering bill.”

SB 373 will:

  • Ensure that a dog is removed from the tether in periods of inclement weather.
  • Provide minimum standards for length and type of tether.
  • Ban the use of poke, pinch, or pronged collars which pose a danger to the dog while tethered.
  • Ensure that the dog may only be tethered long enough for the owner to complete a temporary task and that the owner may not leave the dog unattended and tethered.
