The Township of Hampton Leash Law Ordinance requires all dogs to be on a handheld leash, or confined to their owner's property at all times. Also, dogs may not be tied on public property. Besides being the law, this ordinance is a common sense practice to avoid injury, illness, or loss of your dog.
Dogs roaming freely are in violation of the Pennsylvania State Dog Law and the Hampton Township Ordinance and are subject to impoundment by the Township of Hampton Police Department. Owners of dogs running freely may receive a summons and/or a fine. To report a dog running loose or for more information about the leash law ordinance, please call the Police Department at 412-486-0400 or for immediate response, call 911.
