Animal Care

The Anderson City Council approved an ordinance July 8, 2013, that regulates the tethering of pets. These regulations are designed to lessen the improper care, treatment, environment and maintenance of the animals. The provisions of the ordinance can enhance quality of life for animals and citizens. Some of the provisions include:

  • Pets must not be tethered outside, in any fashion, for more than 2 hours.
  • Tether must not be made of chain.
  • Pets must have a supply of fresh water and food.
  • Pets must have proper shelter.
  • Pets must be in visual sight of responsible party.

Violation may result in monetary penalty and/or jail. For questions, please call (864) 260-4444.
