I want to express my concerns about cruel animal tethering practices and urge you to vote for HB 83. Many jurisdictions have recognized that chaining is cruel. HB 83 does not ban tethering, but it would ensure more humane conditions for dogs and safer

It is better for a dog to have a PROPER tether, not some chain, than be forced to live in a small crappy dog cage- so it is actually good that it doesn't totally ban tethering, like for people who don't have fences- but of course it would be better if the people would build a fence or keep the dog in the house, and not on a tether in the first place!

I so wanted to send the letter requesting more humane tethering rules for dogs, but only people from Illinois can sign. Too bad. All states should be so conscious of animal welfare.

I am against any chaining of any animal in any state I support and advocate for animal lovers in the state of Illinois to work to ban tethering of any sort Most definitely not god by no means for the animal. If one tethers an animal that animal is not a pet more like a chained prisoner is this right and fair for what once was suppose to be the family pet?
