Prevent your pets from becoming a nuisance or a threat in our community by following these guidelines for responsible pet ownership:
- Permanent identification
A collar with a tag or an embedded microchip provides assurance that pets will be returned home if lost.
- Spay or Neuter
Prevent unwanted litters of puppies and kittens, and prevent overpopulation of animals.
- Training, physical care, socialization, and medical attention
Ensure that your pet stays healthy, plays well with others, and behaves in social situations.
