We have noticed an increased number of dogs that have been lost within our city. Please, please, please...put a collar with a tag on your pets, and if possible, have them micro-chipped as well. That way, if an animal is found, we can find the owner much faster. We love dogs (and cats), but we'd rather meet them while they are out walking with their owners, rather than walking themselves!
Also, as a friendly reminder, city ordinance requires you to register your dog. $5 if they are spayed/neutered and $10 if not. That is a yearly fee, and can be paid at City Hall.
