Changes Proposed To Animal Ordinance, Public Comments Wanted

For the first time in 15 years, the City of Lubbock is making changes to its animal ordinance.

The proposed ordinance calls for: more enforcement power, it restricts tethering of an animal unless fenced in, it also puts a four pet limit in place, meaning no one can own more than four adult dogs or four adult cats unless you get a multi-pet permit, it requires identification and registration tags or micro chipping on all cats and dogs, and it does not include a cat leash law, but will require owners to get any roaming cats, registered, spayed or neutered and vaccinated.

A public hearing will be held Tuesday to discuss the ordinance before it's taken to city council in February. You must register at 6:30 to comment during the hearing. It's at city hall in council chambers.
