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.
