Animal Services is committed to keeping local animals safe

(Seguin) -- Seguin Animal Services says its committed to keeping animals in the community safe and well cared for. Morgan Ash, the public information officer, says a new ordinance recently passed by city council adds new protections to our four-legged friends.
 
The new ordinance prohibits stationary tethering (such as chains, leashes, ropes, etc.) of dogs outdoors. Instead, pet owners who choose to tie their dog up outside are required to install an inexpensive trolley system that allows for both humane restraint and maximizes exercise space.

She says all outside dogs must also have a substantial shelter consisting of three sides, a top and bottom; plus, access to clean drinking water at all times.

Animal Services is allowing a 120 day grace period for pet-owners to install the trolley system before the new ordinance will be enforced starting April 4, 2018.  Animal services officials say they would also like to remind owners that pets should have a yearly rabies vaccine and a city license. A license can be purchased at the shelter located at 555 Fred Byrd Drive or from any Seguin veterinarian's office.

Animal Services can be contacted at 401-2335.
