Pass and enforce anti-tethering and humane animal treatment laws

In every city there are repeat offenders who always have neglected dogs in their backyard, but the dogs aren't neglected enough for an Animal Control to bring cruelty charges.

An anti-chaining ordinance will give law enforcement the ability to cite these repeat offenders and end the cycle of neglect. After similar ordinances have been passed in other cities, people who had chained and neglected their dogs for years finally gave up their dogs. For the first time in years, their yards are empty of hungry, flea-bitten, chained dogs who were a constant source of worry to the neighborhood.
