City of Folsom Animal Services would like to share some tips and reminders to help ensure that your four-legged family member is a model city resident.

Make sure your pet is licensed:

Licensing your pet is not only required by law; it also helps reunite them with you they go missing. With the city's online system, licensing your pet is quick and easy, and credit cards are accepted.

Always keep your dog on a leash:

City codes require that your dog stay on a leash at all times when not in your home or on your property. This is for the safety of your dog and others. Off-leash dogs may be startled and run away from your home or into traffic. Loose dogs may also chase or disturb wildlife, which could result in an injury to both your pet and the wild creature. Keep your dog leashed while walking around your neighborhood, on trails, and in parks and near open spaces.

Practice good K9 trail etiquette:

The city has rules to help keep the recreational trails safe and enjoyable for all users, whether they are on foot, bike, or accompanied by a K9 companion. When walking your dog along trails, dogs should be leashed and kept to the left side of their human (who should also be walking on the left side of the trail). Dog owners should pick up after their pets and discard the waste in a garbage can or at one of the dog waste bag stations.

Find more information about rules and regulations for pets on the Folsom Police Department website, or contact Daya Grondin, City of Folsom Animal Control Officer at 916-461-6042.
