Libre’s Law Protects PA Pets


In Pennsylvania, if you witness a dog tied/tethered outside without the owner in attendance with them for longer than 30 minutes in weather colder than 32 degrees Fahrenheit, the owner of the dog is in violation of the recently passed “Libre’s Law”. You can report suspected violations of this law to your local police department.

This printable flyer can also let people know of the new law. Please never act as an officer of the law or a representative of any SPCA or humane society (unless you are…) if approaching anyone in regard to their tethered dog, but sometimes an educational word and encouragement can help someone realize that they are not only in violation of the law, but treating their furry family member harshly by exposing their dog to the brutal elements.
