NEWS RELEASE: Council Approves Ordinance Revisions that Update Animal Care Laws » 
MAY 25, 2021


The Chapter 6 Ordinance Revision focuses on owner responsibility, resolving neglect, resolving nuisances, and modifying some definitions.

CCACS aims to increase the Live Release Rate - the rate at which animals leave the shelter alive through adoption, return to owner, or rescue. ACS has consistently seen this metric climb in recent years, and new ordinances are designed to help us in these continued efforts.
