Sec.4-80 (Running at Large)
"It shall be unlawful for any dog
to run at large inside the city
limits. You may let the dog loose in
your yard not confined if you can
control him but if you go inside the
dog must be confined. You may take
your dog to the park as long as you
keep it on a leash."
2. Sec.4-7 (Cruelty to
"In FLORENCE all dogs must be
well taken care of or the abuser
will face prosecution. All animals
will be provided a four sided
structure to live in, fresh water at
all times, if confined by chain it
must be at least eight feet long and
tangle-free. The best type of
structure is an igloo-type house. We
will take custody of any animal that
is being mistreated or one that is
not being given proper medical care.
No animal may be left unattended at
anytime in a vehicle."
3. Sec.4-10 "No person shall
have a vicious animal inside the
city limits" The Animal Control
Dept. has the right to ban vicious
animals or force the owner to move
them outside the city limits."
4. Sec.4-12 "Barking Dogs"
We receive many complaints on
barking dogs. When someone complains
about barking dogs we assist by
taking the dog's owner a copy of the
ordinance letting them know someone
has complained. The next step
requires the person complaining to
have a summons sent to the owner and
then both parties will appear before
the municipal judge."
