South Carolina: Protect Dogs From Cruel Chaining and Tethering

Dogs who are kept chained in one spot for long periods of time suffers immense psychological damage, and can become neurotic, unhappy, anxious, and often very aggressive. In many cases, the necks of chained dogs become rubbed raw and covered with sores, the result of improperly fitted collars and the dogs' constant yanking and straining in desperate attempts to escape confinement.

You can help change this. New legislation (S.B. 833) has been introduced that will place restrictions on the tethering of dogs in South Carolina.

Please make a brief, polite phone call your state senator and ask him or her to support this legislation. Click here to look up your state senator and the phone number.

After you make your call, fill in and submit the form at the right to automatically send a follow-up email to your legislator. Remember to personalize the email message by expressing your opinion in your own words; it's much more effective.

  1. I feel so for the dog next door, chained, left out in the elements in a chain link cage she has chewed through, crying, struggling every day and night. I have reported to management, his, the state, and county for over 2 years, but they do not care. My heart is breaking for this dog and others like her. My neighbor even threatened me for reporting.
