Golden Rules for Responsible Pet Ownership

  1. Choose your type and breed of pet carefully.
  2. Be sure that your dog and your cat are licensed and wearing their tags.
  3. Train your dog and your cat so that it is well behaved and not a nuisance to other people.
  4.  Ensure that your pets are not free to roam.
  5. Keep your dog on a leash whenever it is off your property, unless it is in a designated off-leash area.
  6. Be sure they are spayed or neutered.
  7. Please remember that regular visits to your vet will help to keep your animal in good health.
  8. Do not allow your pet to foul the sidewalks, streets, gardens or parks. Carry a bag to collect your dog’s litter and remove it immediately.
  9. Keep your dog and cat clean and groom them on a regular basis.
  10. Give your dog or cat proper food, shelter and exercise.
  11. Make proper care arrangements for your pet (s) during vacations and holidays.

  1. A pet is your companion for life.
