SPCA wants Lancaster County to ban dog tethering in cold weather

The Lancaster County SPCA wants to have a county ordinance making it illegal to tether a dog outside in freezing weather.

LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) – With temperatures expected to dip into the single digits this weekend, the Lancaster County SPCA is worried some dogs might freeze to death.

The SPCA is pushing for a county ordinance making it illegal to tether a dog outside in freezing weather.

A dog is permitted to be out in the cold weather if it has adequate shelter to retain body heat.

In a recent newsletter, the SPCA encouraged residents to contact their state representative about a dog tethering bill.
