Public survey: Should continuous dog chaining be restricted in King County? Responses will be presented to council with report findings
King County residents are invited to share their opinions about a proposed dog tethering ordinance by taking a King County Animal Care and Control survey. The survey will be accessible for one week in the right sidebar at www.kingcounty.gov/pets, until February 13, 2009. Responses will be given to the King County Council as part of a feasibility study of a potential ordinance restricting continuous dog chaining in King County.
King County’s animal cruelty investigations program has increased the number of cases sent to prosecutors by more then 300 percent in the last two years. The County is building a model animal care and control program that focuses on saving lives through proactive licensing education and enforcement, enhanced pet adoption programs, and a stronger veterinary medical program.
