Whether inside or outside, ALL PETS should have access to food, water, protection from the weather.

All Dogs should be contained, either on a leash or inside an appropriate fencing. Loose dogs are in danger and a hazard to people and other animals. Dog owners that allow their pet to roam are subject to fines and having their pet taken.
