Dogs off of their property must be properly restrained by a leash or enclosed in a vehicle, cage, or similar enclosure. If an animal is running loose or unrestrained, it may be impounded. Additionally, reclaiming your animal that strayed off property will require paying a reclaiming fee. For more information, please see County Ordinance 32.0108.
Animals In Passenger Vehicles
While there is no regulation on animals being loose inside the passenger compartment of a vehicle, they can cause distractions or obstructions that lead to accidents. Ensure that pets riding with you are secure and will not pose a danger to themselves, you, or others.
