Code Enforcement officers will evaluate the welfare of the animal first. If the animal's welfare is acceptable, we advise the owner concerning the complaint and ask that they take measures to quiet their animal(s). Code Enforcement keeps records of all complaints. The complaining party may fill out a barking dog incident log. Code Enforcement may not issue a citation for a plaintiff without a a barking dog log entry to appear in court with the defendant and citing officer.
You must have a current annual rabies vaccination certificate from a licensed veterinarian for each dog and cat. State law requires an animal to be at least 3-months old.
Furnish or mail the rabies certificate to our office located at 1300 East Ashley with the annual fee of $5 for each altered animal or $10 for each intact animal. You must show documentation of spay or neuter to receive the $5 fee. The registration and identification tag will be mailed to you within 10 working days.
Citizens over the age of 62 or with disabilities who possess altered animals are required to register their animals, but are exempt from paying the fees. You are required to attach the registration tag to your dog's collar. Cats are not required by law to wear registration tags, however we highly recommend this since a tag is provided and it is the best way to return a lost cat to it's owner.
Adoption fees for dogs range from $61 - $94; for cats $41 - $66. Fees are dependent on the type and gender of the animal.
You may bring an animal to the shelter that you have found. However it is safer and easier for us to transport the animal to the shelter for you. This also helps in returning the animal to its rightful owner.
Yes you can receive a citation for your animals if they are in violation of one of our city codes. Please refer to Chapter 10 of the Municipal Code
Yes you may have both inside city limits. However chickens cannot be within 100 feet of another residence. For goats you must have ½ acre per 2 goats. Larger livestock requires 1 acre per 2 animals.
Yes we can. We help in removing squirrels, raccoons, groundhogs, opossum and snakes. We do not help with bees and birds. We also are not able to go into attics or crawl spaces. We use live traps to catch the animals.
