Pets and Cold Weather

Cold weather is coming, so please keep pets inside or protected from the elements.

If the temperature is 32 degrees or colder, the ordinance states dog owners cannot leave their dogs outside for more than 30 minutes. Exceptions will be made for dogs that have access to a safe, heated structure, and Animal Welfare Superintendent Jon Gary said officers will use discretion in cases of breeds that can better tolerate cold weather.

Violations could result in up to $500 in fines, though Gary said that would be a last resort.
