Responsible Pet Ownership

Be a Responsible Pet Owner

  • Protect your pet with a license tag on your pet's collar. This is good insurance in helping reunite you with your animal if your pet should become lost. Ninety-eight percent of the dogs impounded wearing a license return home.
  • Spay/neuter your pet to do your part in helping solve pet overpopulation.
  • Spayed females are normally healthier, live longer, and do not come into heat, which attracts unaltered males to your property. Neutered males are better companion animals and are less likely to stray.
  • Leash your pet to prevent injury and to keep them from trespassing or causing injury to others.
  • Make sure your pet is a good neighbor by keeping your dog from barking needlessly and disturbing your neighborhood.
