New Dog Tether Laws
 
On Tuesday, January 18, 2022 a new Texas law takes effect outlawing the use of chains and unattended use of short tethers on dogs who are kept outside. The new law also requires the owner to provide proper shelter from extreme weather and standing water. Dog owners are now required under state law to make sure that drinkable water is available at all times.
 
The new law also does away with a previously required 24-hour waiting period for officers to intervene in cases where dogs are at risk of inhumane treatment. Those found to be in violation of the law could face a fine of up to $500. Repeat offenders can also be arrested.
 
Constable Ted Heap, a founding member of the Harris County Animal Cruelty Taskforce, encourages those who suspect animal abuse, neglect, hoarding or torture to report it to 927PAWS.org or 832-927-PAWS. #constabletedheap #yourconstable
