Alachua county adopts anti-chaining ordinance

As previously noted here and here, the move toward preventing dogs from being chained or tethered is gaining more and more support in 2007. Now, Alachua County, as the High Springs Herald reports, has passed a new ordinance that limits the amount of time that dogs can be chained. After hearing from an expert on the negative impacts of chaining, the Alachua County Commission unanimously voted to ban the chaining or tethering of dogs for more than three hours in a 24-hour period.
