RE: DOGS RUNNING AT LARGE

To all dog owners:

Dogs running at large is the number one complaint of the residents of Louisville. At the city council meeting Wednesday, discussion was held on options to reverse this complaint. The city has been forced to take action on this matter and will no longer tolerate the violation. 

According to Municipal Code, Section 6-109, it shall be unlawful for the owner of any dog or cat to allow such dog or cat to run at large at any time within the corporate limits of the city. RUNNING AT LARGE shall mean any dog or cat found off the premises of the owner, and not under control of the owner or a responsible person, either by leash, cord, chain, wire, rope, cage or other suitable means of physical restraint. It shall be the duty of the City Humane Officer to cause any dog or cat found to be running at large within the city to be taken up and impounded. 

In the past, this code has not been enforced completely, but the situation may warrant that the city obtain a Humane Officer. Animal owners have this final warning to handle the situation by means of a fence or some other such restraint. Again, the City of Louisville will no longer tolerate animals running at large. 

Sincerely,

David Pankonin                                   Dan Henry                               Dee Arias
