Tempe Passes Anti-Tethering Ordinance

A new anti-tethering law for dogs will soon go in effect in Tempe.  The City of Tempe passed the ordinance last night.  

The new law says tying a dog up is only legal if the animal has access to food, water and shelter, the temperature is between 45 and 85 degrees and the tether has anti-tangle features.  

The new law goes into effect in January.  Breaking the law comes with a 500-dollar fine.
