Animal Care

Animal Care

The animal care and maintenance ordinance, which was adopted July 8, 2013, was designed to lessen improper care and treatment of animals, as well as address the living environment and maintenance of animals. Anderson citizens should be pleased to know that the new law is generating positive results.

The ordinance, also referred to as the animal care/tethering ordinance, has been effective. The first 30+ days of implementation have shown positive results. Approximately 150 dogs are no longer living in chained/tethered conditions. Passage of the law and the educational efforts are working.

Included in these positive results are the cooperative efforts with Freedom Fences who has provided/installed at least 30 fences over the past 30 days, plus spay/neutering services. As expected, the number of calls for Animal Control rose in June and early July (from 272 to 355), but calls for August seem to be trending back to normal levels. Many thanks to City Council, the supportive citizens, and the Anderson Police Department and Animal Control Officer Michelle Smith.
