Frequently asked questions:
I just moved to the County, can I let my pet roam free.
No. Carroll County Ordinance requires pets be restrained in a manner that prevents their leaving the property of their owner.
Is it illegal for me to use a chain or cable to restrain my pet?
No. The ordinance allows a pet owner to use a leash, fence or other appropriate enclosure to keep pets restrained, as long as it does not hurt the animal and it has access to adequate shelter, food and water.
How do I restrain my cat?
It is recommended cats be kept indoors since outdoor restraint is so difficult, however, outside pens are acceptable as long as it prevents the cat from leaving your property and does not cause undo harm.
Do I have to leave my Name when filing a complaint with Animal Control?
