Unlawful Restraint of a Dog Notice
The City of Olton reminds you as an animal owner within the city limits that you are required to abide by both state laws and city ordinances regarding the lawful restraint of animals. Under the new state law effective as of January 18, 2022, there are restrictions on restraining your dog.
Under The City’s Animal Control Ordinance, which was adopted September 9, 2019, it is already unlawful for a person to use a chain, rope, tether, leash, cable, or other device to attach a dog to a stationary object or trolley system. Any animal owner found in violation of the provisions of the Animal Control Ordinance may be fined up to $500 for each separate offense.
