With such great weather, more and more people are walking their dogs. Please remember to clean up after them. Also make sure your dog is on a leash. This is required by our City Ordinance. If they stay outside, remember to give them water, food and shade and make sure they are securely locked in the yard. We had an instance where a small dog was loose and walked up to a larger dog who was on a leash and being walked by its owner and, unfortunately, the small dog was mauled to death. The City requires that all dogs be licensed. The tags can be purchased at City Hall at a cost of $2.00. You need to bring in an updated vaccination record in order to get the tags.

Let’s keep our pets safe so you can get years of enjoyment from them. After all, they are family members.
