Show your support for an anti-tethering (chaining) ordinance for Gaston County pets!

This petition had 1,596 supporters

Tethering, or chaining, is the practice of restricting an animal's movement by using a rope or chain to tie the animal to a fixed object.  Sadly, many animals in our county live their entire lives tied to a tree or post, able to only move a short distance.  Many counties and cities in North Carolina are taking a stand against this barbaric practice by implementing laws and ordinances banning owners from chaining pets.  County Commissioners of Randolph County, NC recently voted to amend the county's ordinance to ban tethering.  Other cities and counties that have implemented anti-tethering ordinances include:  Asheville, Cary, Chapel Hill, Clayton, Cumberland County, Davidson, Durham County, Enfield, Guilford County, New Hanover County, Roanoke Rapids, Weldon.

Do you think it is time our County Commissioners take a stand for animals and implement similar bans in Gaston County?   We do!!!  

Please take a moment to sign our petition, and SHARE, SHARE, SHARE!!!  We also invite you to LIKE and SHARE our Facebook page, Gaston Animal Advocates!!!

One minute of your time can mean a world of change for a dog on the end of a chain.  Dogs are not yard ornaments, and life on a chain is no life at all.
