1. Keep them cool
If your pet spends time outdoors, make sure they have a shady spot to rest
and plenty of water keep them hydrated. Never leave your pet in your car
unattended. Even on a mild 80 degree day the inside of your car can heat
up to nearly 100 in mere minutes.
Make sure your pet has proper ID in case they get lost. Better yet, have
them microchipped just in case they lose their tags. The City of Roanoke
requires that pet dogs and cats 4 months of age or older be registered with
Trophy Club does not require registration by law but they do strongly
suggest having dogs registered in their database system for free. This
allows the TCPD Animal Control Officer to reunite the pet with their owner
3. Keep pets on a leash
For the safety of your pet and others, keep your dog on a leash at all times
when walking. The City of Roanoke’s ordinance states that animals shall not
be at large within the city limits. The term "at-large" is defined as an animal
that is not restrained by means of a leash or chain while off the owner's
property or not confined to the premises of its owner by a containment
device or secured by a leash on said premises.
Not only do vaccinations keep you and your family safe, they are required
by law in the state of Texas.
The City of Roanoke requires that every owner of a dog or cat 4 months
of age or older shall have the animal vaccinated against rabies and re-
vaccinated at 1 year of age and annually thereafter.
