General Pet Care Tips

Keep current identification on your dog or cat at all times. Pet licensing is required by law in Spokane County. A license for your pet is not only obeying the law, but is giving you a phone call home if he or she becomes lost or wanders from home.

Spay or Neuter your pet. Spaying or neutering your pet results in better health and longer life for the animal and provides peace of mind for you. Many of the animals euthanized at shelters are the results of accidental breeding.

Always keep your dog or cat properly confined or supervised. Our community has leash laws.

  • Dogs: Are required by law to be kept confined to your property or to be on a leash when off your property.
  • Cats: Its is unlawful for a cat to run at large without being spayed or neutered, or to be on private property without permission of the property owner.

Pets must be controlled as a courtesy to others and for their protection. 

In addition to the basics -- food, water, shelter, and veterinary care -- make sure to give your pets lots of love and attention.'s quote of the day
