Changes to Animal Control Enforcement

Spotlight image: Changes to Animal Control Enforcement

Several animal control ordinances were changed to civil infractions rather than criminal misdemeanors. These code changes lessen the severity of the penalty to more accurately fit the “crime.” With the new codes, people in violation will get a civil citation with an immediate fine versus a possible criminal record, fines and jail time. These changes also make enforcement quicker and easier with the goal of gaining compliance and relief from the problem as quickly as possible. Common violations include: animal at large (off-leash), animal disturbance (barking dog), animal waste removal/pick-up and any animal license/rabies vaccination violations. For more info, please visit the Larimer Humane Society.
