AnimalOrdinance
New ordinance set adequate standards of care

 

Terri Tragesser of the Dawson Humane Society reports that at a recent the Dawson County Board of Commissioner's meeting a revised Animal Control Ordinance was proposed to include new language to protect animals from living out their lives at the end of a chain.  The new language makes it unlawful for dog owners to use tethering as a primary means of restraint.  It also defines the minimum requirements for shelter, food and water. The County Commissioners voted unanimously to approve the changes. Report suspected cases of neglect, abuse and cruelty to Dawson County Animal Control Officers at 706-265-7387.
