Animal Control wants to make you a deal you shouldn’t refuse.
If an Animal Control Officer picks up a pet wearing a tag that the officer can trace, or has a registered microchip, the officer will bring the pet home, rather than taking it to the shelter (providing there are no serious law violations such as a bite or mauling, and that there is an adult owner home to receive the pet).
This is their pledge to our citizens and the animals. No kidding! It’s true. You can read about it HERE on the city website.
