Dog at largeAnimals Running At Large
To report a dog at large, please call 208.726.7818.

It is unlawful for any owner, possessor or person who keeps any animal to permit the same to run at large upon the private premises of others or upon the streets, alleys, sidewalks, highways, vacant lots, school grounds, or other public places within the city.

An animal shall be deemed to be running at large when off or away from the premises of the owner, possessor, or keeper, and not under the immediate family, either by leash, cord, chain, or by verbal control of a person within ten feet of such animal. This provision shall not apply to dogs working with livestock or to dogs, engaged with their owner or handler, in hunting or performing in field trials.

Violation of the provisions of this section is declared to be a nuisance and a menace to the public health and safety, and any animal which violates the provisions of this section shall be taken up and impounded as provided in this chapter. (Ord. 820 § 1, 1999: Ord. 469 § 2, 1988)

Dogs at LargeIdentification Tags
Make sure your pets are wearing identification tags so that if they do become lost, they can be returned promptly. Animals found running at-large should be wearing identification tags, so we know who to call and where to return the animal to his/her rightful owner.

Hazardous Situations
Do not leave your pet in the car. With only hot air to breathe inside a car, your pet can suffer serious health effects, even death, in a few short minutes. Partially opened windows do not provide sufficient air, but do provide an opportunity for your pet to be stolen.
