Lubbock City Council Passes Animal Ordinance

For the first time in 15 years, the City of Lubbock has a new animal ordinance. Wednesday,  Lubbock City Council members passed a new animal ordinance. We've been following the proposal since January.

Here's a look at some of the most significant changes.

  • The ordinance requires roaming cats to be identified, spayed, neutered and vaccinated.
  • Prolonged tethering of an animal is prohibited unless the animal is fenced in.
  • Dog owners must carry materials to remove their pet's excrement on public and private property.
  • It also limits the number of pets a person can have to four adult dogs and or cats.
