The City does not have a leash law but requires owners to be in control of their pets at all times. The City does have a vicious animal ordinance. Dogs are considered vicious that have bitten or have threatened to bite persons. Dogs that cross property lines and attack other dogs are also considered vicious along with dogs that destroy personal property. Animals that cause damage or have have been classified as vicious must be maintaned by the owner and are not permitted to roam free. The City provides pick up services for stray dogs and cats. All animals picked up by the city will be delivered to the Animal Shelter of Pell City.
