Pet Overpopulation

PET OVERPOPULATION problems affect people as well as animals.

  • the cost to the taxpayers for animal control services
  • the spread of disease both among animals and between animals and humans
  • the incidents of animal bites
  • the damage and destruction to property
  • traffic accidents involving straying animals
  • abuse of animals which often leads to human violence
  • We are asking you, the public, to help reduce the number of stray, unwanted and at times, abused animals by doing the following:
  • Make a lifetime commitment to caring for your pets.
  • Keep your animal on a leash when off your property (Not everyone likes pets!)
  • Contact Animal Control when you see stray or roaming animals.
  • Report any violence against animals.
