Dog Tethering

PETITION: Make it illegal to leave a dog left tied "tethered" and unattended in the State of Ohio.

TARGET: Ohio House of Representatives and Governor John Kasich

We have all passed by a dog which is left tied up outside in horrible conditions while the owner is nowhere in sight. Leaving your "pet" tied outside is irresponsible and no way to treat man's best friend. This practice is currently illegal in California and Connecticut. Other states have similar laws but they don't go far enough in ensuring that the animal is being properly taken care of and treated properly. Please sign and share this petition asking the Governor and State Representatives of Ohio to sign and enforce a law similar to the California Health and Safety Code Section 122335 within SB 1578.

We the undersigned are writing to ask you to create and sign a law similar to California Health and Safety Code Section 122335 within SB 1578. In summary, this law makes it illegal to leave a dog chained or tethered outside and unattended. A person who violates this is guilty of an infraction or a misdemeanor. We do not believe it is fair to the dog nor in the dog's best interest to be tied or "tethered" for long periods of time. This practice leads to behavioral problems and puts member's of the community at risk. We would like to see this practice stopped and the violators punished.
