Surrey’s New Time Tethering Bylaw, needs you as a witness

SURREY’S NEW TIME LIMITED TETHERING BYLAW PROVING UNENFORCEABLE

Surrey is now accepting reports from the community about tethered dogs. And just as the Campaign for Animal Rights (CARL) advised Surrey Council prior to the passage of the time limited ban, by-law enforcement officers have been advising the callers that the bylaw is unenforceable and not a single dog has yet been removed from their chain. Since it is impractical for bylaw enforcement officers to sit unobserved outside a chained dogs home for four hours, it is now incumbent on neighbors to prove the dog is on their chain longer than four hours. And how can neighbors be expected to video tape their neighbors dog for a four hour period. As we advised Mayor Watts and her Council, the only enforceable tethering bylaw is a ban on the chaining of unattended dogs.

Surrey residents, please report all dogs who you know are on chains for longer than four hours to Surrey By-Law enforcement at 604-591-4370 and continue to followup with them about the dog until something is done. Please also email the addresses of chained dogs who have not been helped to us at justiceforanimals9@gmail.com. We will go to the media, who is very interested in this issue, and expose the unenforceability of their bylaw.

And everyone, please write Mayor Watts and her council at to complain about their new bylaw and demand they create an unattended tethering ban and truly help end the suffering of chained dogs in Surrey.
