The legislation is quite similar to some that the Austin City Council is contemplating and with which we at Fidelio strongly support. Dogs should never be left tethered to an object for any longer than one hour and that shouldn’t even happen if the temperature is about 90 degrees.
So, take a look at the Times article above and shoot an email to the city council members to remind them to support the ordinance against tethering dogs.
