If you live in a community that has yet to pass an anti-tethering ordinance, here’s your opportunity to take some positive action. Begin by reviewing the ordinances of other communities, taking into account the particular needs and challenges of your own. The HSUS has developed a free, user-friendly and downloadable packet of material that offers helpful suggestions on how to write and propose a good anti-tethering ordinance that is appropriate for your community.
The goal is to develop legislation that will not only serve animals, but will also be accepted and actively enforced. And that’s something we can all get behind.

**See Helping Animals for a list of ordinances and specific texts, as well as communities that have passed them.
