STRUTHERS, Ohio (WKBN) – On Wednesday, Struthers City Council was presented with a proposal to adopt a dog tethering ordinance.
Currently, the city of Struthers does not have a tethering ordinance, although cities like Youngstown and Boardman recently passed laws that do not allow dogs to be tied to an object for extended lengths of time.
The proposal was presented by animal advocate Jason Cooke.
“No dog should be confined or tethered in any type of weather for extended period of times,” Cooke said.
Struthers Mayor Terry Stocker says it is time the city had a tethering ordinance, and City Council will soon discuss it.
