Leash laws

Nova Scotia SPCAs want amendments to their province’s Animal Rights Act.

Currently, the provincial government is going through the consultation process to consolidate and update existing legislation. Clarenville Area SPCA spokesperson Nancy Avery says they continue to come across dogs that have been kept on tethers for most, if not all, of their lives. Avery says most recently, they rescued two dogs but were forced to euthanize them because they had not been socialized properly.  She says tethered dogs lack the care and attention required for them to develop social skills.Avery says under current legislation, dogs that are tethered cannot be seized by the SPCA because their “basic necessities of life” are being provided.
