A growing number of counties across the country express the same sentiment that adopting an anti chaining ordinance helps to create safer communities and is a more humane way of life for our animals.
Now the residents of Sarasota County has the chance to change their current ordinance. Revisions would permit temporary tethering for outdoor enjoyment purposes of supervised animals; however, permanent tethering or chaining would be prohibited.
Public Comment on this ordinance will take place on September 15 at 9:00 AM at the Sarasota County Administration Building, 1660 Ringling Blvd, Sarasota. It is Item number 7.
The more signatures this petition will have by then, the greater the chance is that we can end this cruel and inhumane practice of chaining dogs.
