Kudos from HSUS

Thanks to calls and emails from Dallas animal advocates, the City Council passed an ordinance to significantly improve the lives of pets.

The City Council considered the issue for more than 3 hours on Wednesday, June 25, before making its decision. There were more than 100 people on each side of the argument and everyone got to speak. The opposition attempted to introduce an alternative ordinance, however the Council immediately rejected it and stood by a strong pet protection policy which had been prepared and introduced over eight months ago.

This new law revises Dallas’ Animal Code by 1. requiring the spaying and neutering of most pets to significantly reduce the number of homeless pets being killed in shelters; 2. requiring proper restraint and control of owned animals; 3. limiting the number of owned animals per household; and 4. strictly controlling and efficiently dealing with dangerous dogs.

Thank you for all you do for animals.
