Leash laws apply to all pets. When your pet is off your property, it must be on a leash. Pets are not allowed to run loose in Tredyffrin Township. If you leave your pet outside in your yard, you must have some type of system in place to ensure it does not leave your property.
If your pet is found loose, it may be picked up and taken to the Chester County SPCA as a stray, which may result in fines assessed to the owner.
If your pet escapes and you are unable to find it, call the Tredyffrin Township Police Department at 610-644-3221. You can also file a Lost & Found Pet Form with the Police Department.
Tredyffrin Township ordinances also require that you pick up after your dog. Allowing your dog to defecate and not removing the waste carries a fine of up to $1,000.
