We love our pets! There are a few regulations that insure that our community enjoys your pet and protects both the pet and the residents. The ordinances about pets in Shoreacres are in Division 3 of the city code. Here are a few of the regulations:

Sec. 6-91. – Vaccination required for dogs, cats and ferrets.

No person shall own, keep, or harbor within the city any dog, cat, or ferret four months of age or older unless such animal has a current rabies vaccination, as determined by the T.D.H. The animal must be revaccinated before the expiration of the first and each subsequent current vaccination period.

(Ord. No. 96-07, § 2, 6-24-1996; Ord. No. 2003-28, § 2, 11-24-2003; Ord. No. 2015-181, 6-8-2015)

Sec. 6-92. – Registration of dogs and cats required.

(a) Registration required. No owner within the city limits shall have in his/her possession a dog or cat four months of age or older unless said dog or cat is currently registered with the city. No dog or cat shall be registered unless it has current vaccination. 

(b) Renewal. A registration shall be renewed no later than the date of expiration of the current vaccination period for which it was issued. 

(c) Vaccination required. A registration certificate and tag can be obtained with proof of vaccination at the Shoreacres City Hall. 

(d) Tags. Upon acceptance of the registration application and payment of the license fee, the regulatory authority shall issue a durable tag, stamped with an identifying number. The owner of such animal must attach the tag to a collar or harness and said collar or harness must be worn by the animal at all times. The tag or receipt for payment of said tag shall be presented to the regulatory authority upon demand. Failure to present the license tag or receipt shall constitute a violation of this chapter. 

(e) Fee. A fee of $4.00 shall be assessed for each registration tag issued. The regulatory authority shall maintain a record of the identifying numbers of all tags issued. If the tag has been lost, a duplicate can be obtained from city hall for a fee of $2.00. 

(f) Exemptions. The registration requirements of this section shall not apply to: (1) An animal under the age of four months of age. (2) Animals that are owned by or in custody of persons who are nonresidents of the city traveling through the city temporarily or sojourning therein for a period not to exceed 30 days. (3) Dogs or cats brought into the city exclusively for the purpose of entering them in any dog or cat show or exhibition.
