Laws are written to ensure that companion animals are confined to their property or kept on a leash to make a community safer.

Although most dog bites occur on the property where the dog lives, unrestrained or free-roaming dogs do pose a substantial threat to the public. In addition, unrestrained animals are at increased risk of being bitten by rabies infected wildlife.

Enforcement of restraint laws is essential in enhancing the animal control program's efforts to reduce the risk of rabies in our community.
