High Point enacts a dog tethering ban

If you are a resident in High Point and keep your dog tied in the yard, you will need to find a new way to keep your dog in the yard.  The City of High Point has enacted a dog tethering ban.  From the High Point Enterprise:

“For the past several months, animal rights activists have pressed City Council to restrict or ban the tethering of unattended, outdoor dogs. Animal rights activists contend the practice of tethering unattended dogs for long periods in a yard is cruel and dangerous.

High Point Police Department Major Larry Casterline said city law enforcement supports the policy.

The city ordinance would be phased in during the next 18 months, including a final six months in which violators would be issued warnings. After the 18-month grace period, penalties for offenses would start at $100, then $250 for a second offense and $500 for a third and subsequent offense”.
