Dallas animal ordinance showdown set for June
Thu, May 08, 2008

So says Mayor Pro Tem Elba Garcia, who's this year helped lead an effort to
strengthen Dallas' animal control laws.

The proposed ordinance in part calls for the mandatory spaying or neutering
of all pets, restrictions on tethering pets in a yard and limiting the
number of dogs and cats to six per household.

The full council will conduct a June 18 briefing on the proposed ordinance,
with a formal vote to follow the next week, on June 25, Dr. Garcia said

Given the strong feelings on both sides of the issue, gear up: Plenty of
humans will be barking up a storm at City Hall.
