The Animal Control Ordinance protects citizens from the danger and nuisances created by uncontrolled or diseased animals. Protection of citizens is accomplished through the enforcement of various state statutes and City ordinances.

Dogs and/or cats are not allowed to run at large on private property and must wear collar and tags at all times.
 
It is extremely important that pets are licensed and vaccinated at six months of age.
