HUGE Victory For the Dogs of Columbia, MO!

Tethering Ordinance Passes Unanimously at the City Counsel meeting on June 4th

No “unsupervised tethering” for dogs in our City!

We are very excited to announce that the changes to the Chapter 5 Section of the Animal Ordnance for Boone County, MO received a unanimous “YES” vote on June 4th. This is incredible news for the dogs of our community!

This ordinance will protect dogs from being tethered outside if not supervised. It also includes the requirement of proper shelter, water and food at all times and has a 30 minute limitation.

It is now our hope that this ordinance will become the “model” for other cities in Missouri to follow.

To watch a video and/or read more details about the Ordinance, please see KOMU news link, “Columbia approves amendment to animal tethering ordinance.”

We want to thank all of YOU who wrote to the Mayor and Counsel members. We also want to thank the Department of Public Health and Human Services and Animal Control of Boone County, MO. A very special thank you to the City Counsel for hearing the voices of the community and being the voice for the animals.

This is a HUGE victory for chained dogs in Columbia, MO!
