Adoptable (Official) Georgia Dogs for August 8, 2022

Some Glynn County residents are seeking stricter tethering laws, according to The Brunswick News.

Critics want county commissioners to write a new ordinance that provides more protection for dogs tethered outside for hours at a time in all weather conditions.

Lynn Stephens, a volunteer with No Kill Glynn, said a petition is being circulated asking for a new ordinance that has more protections for tethered dogs.

Stephanie Schafer, a No Kill Glynn volunteer, said the petition she is circulating has more than 2,500 signatures already. She plans to present it to county commissioners at an upcoming meeting.

Glynn County Commissioner Bill Brunson described tethering as a “horrible practice,” especially in the hot summer heat. He believes some dogs are tethered outside for security purposes.

Glynn County Commissioner Bill Brunson described tethering as a “horrible practice,” especially in the hot summer heat. He believes some dogs are tethered outside for security purposes.

But Brunson questioned if a stronger ordinance is the solution.

“I don’t know how you would enforce it,” he said. “I will support anything as long as it’s enforceable.”

Commission Chairman Wayne Neal said he “has a love of animals as deep as anyone” but he said it’s challenging to create a tethering ordinance that is fair to everyone. He said it’s difficult to investigate complaints and some calls could be personal disputes that have nothing to do with the welfare of an animal.

Bernice is a female mixed breed dog who is available for adoption from The Humane Society of South Coastal Georgia in Brunswick, GA.

Bernice is a beautiful girl surrendered by her owner due to their living situation. She is young, energetic and curious. Bernice comes from a background of living with children and adults, and is also housebroken and crate trained. Given her age and size, she would benefit from a fenced yard for plenty of exercise and play time with her new family. Bernice would love an opportunity to give a new family all her love and attention. She misses being part of a clan with treats and soft blankets.
