VOTE NO ON PROPOSED CHATHAM COUNTY, GEORGIA CH. 22 ORDINANCE - ANIMAL SERVICES

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


PURPOSE: To show the Chatham County Board of Commissioners that the people of Chatham County are against the Chapter 22 Revised Ordinance for the following main reasons:


1. Vaccination and Licensing Requirements – Rabies vaccination minimal age SHOULD be determined between owner and a licensed veterinarian not at three months
2. Tag to be attached – Dangerous to leave collars with tags on dogs. An ID Card may be more helpful
3. Fees – veterinarians should not be required to collect license fees and taxes for vaccinations. This procedure would increase their operating expenses which would be passed on to their clients
4. Impoundment of Unlicensed, Unvaccinated Dogs or Cats – Many registries are available not only AKC. Dogs should not be altered (spayed or neutered) upon impoundment for many reasons including health issues. Show dogs are no longer able to show once altered
5. Animal Confinement and Left Unattended in Parked Car – Ordinance does not mention anything about a citizen entering a vehicle to save an animal and not being responsible for vehicle damages after calling animal services or the police without a timely response
6. Too much language in the ordinance regarding “mandatory spay & neutering” when the dog is impounded “for any violation of the ordinance” and states immediately or within five days. It also states after five days, ownership is transferred to Animal Services
