"Welcome to the City of ********* Animal Services Division, where we endeavor to protect animals from abuse, and people from animal bites and disease. We have a staff of concerned and caring individuals in the Field, Kennel, and Office willing to assist you however possible.
If you own a pet, responsible pet ownership is something expected by your friends and neighbors to ensure both their peace of mind, and the overall living conditions of our community. The law has certain requirements for every dog, cat, or ferret:
Vaccinations - rabies required annually

available at Animal Services or your veterinarian
Leash Law - leash required whenever animal is off the owner's property
leash may be no longer than 8 feet in length
