Responsible Pet Owner

Your responsibilities as a pet owner:

  • To provide your pet with fresh food and water daily.
  • To provide shelter and shade.
  • To provide a safe fenced yard or cage area large enough to be comfortable.
  • To provide proper vaccinations (shots).
  • To keep your dog, cat or pig licensed.
  • To provide veterinary care.
  • To keep your dog in a fenced yard or on a leash, and not allowed to roam free.
  • To spay or neuter your dog and cat. They will not be producing unwanted babies, and will live longer, healthier lives.
  • To keep as pets only those animals which make good pets and are legal to keep (no rattlesnakes, ferrets, etc).
  • To provide love and proper care for your pet.
