Verrado is home to many four-legged friends and their families who care for them.
We all know that being a parent to a pet also comes with responsibilities. In addition to attending to their basic needs, there is also the concern of how they will adapt to their environment.
With temperatures dropping we see an increase in outdoor activity, which draws attention to some common concerns surrounding pet ownership. It’s a good time to remind everyone of the ordinances and etiquette that will keep residents of all species healthy and happy year round.
Register and license your dogs and cats with Maricopa County Animal Care & Control. For added peace of mind, microchip your pets too!
Leash your dogs at all times when they are outside of your residence or an enclosure. Leashes may be no longer than 6 feet in length.
Barking or howling on a consistent basis is considered disturbing the peace and is, in fact, unlawful.
Pick up after your pet, please! Neglecting to properly dispose of your pet’s solid waste is littering. Each park in Verrado is equipped with trash receptacles; make sure you are prepared with a bag when you go out for a walk.
Join the Verrado Kennel Club Facebook group so that if your pet is lost in our community, others can help bring your beloved fur-baby home safely. If you are missing a dog or find one lost contact Sarah Taylor.
We hope your pets enjoy being active and integrated members of our community. Let’s pledge to be responsible pet owners and continue to create harmony amongst pets and the people around us. After all, we don’t want to let our neighborhood go to the dogs!
