Animal Control

Home | Animal Control

Dogs and cats make great pets.  We are happy that so many of our citizens enjoy the benefits of pet ownership.  Unfortunately, through some process, occasionally pets get separated from their owners or are even abandoned.  Consequently, the city has passed a number of ordinances regulating pets and animals within our municipal limits.

  • All dogs must have proof of rabies vaccination.
  • Dogs must be kept in an adequate fence or enclosure.
  • The City has a Leash Law ordinance and enforces it.
  • The City has an ordinance concerning vicious dogs and prohibits all pit bulls (and pit bull mixes) inside the city limits (City Ordinance 564).

The Certified Animal Control Officer is a Trumann Police Department officer.
