Stop chaining dogs in Florida!

On March 9, 2012, in Jacksonville, Florida, seventeen-month-old Dylan Andres was killed by a chained Rottweiler. Unfortunatelty, Dyan join three other Florida children who were killed by tethered dogs. 

As of October 2020, nineteen Florida counties and dozens of Florida cities and towns have passed attended-tethering-only laws. These laws allow tethering, but only if the dog’s caretaker is outside, and the dog is visible. Attended-tethering-only laws affect 65% of Florida’s population. 

Concerned citizens along with a growing list of Florida legislators have introduces FL HB 177 and FL SB 650 that if passed, will prohibit unattended dog tethering in Florida. The law is aptly named, "Dylan's Dog Chaining Law.”

Sign this petition and add a comment to let Florida Legislators know that you want to them to pass Dylan’s Law and let’s take dogs off chains in Florida forever.
