Public Hearing on Animal Control Ordinance Updates
On Thursday October 18th at 6PM in the Bradley Meeting Room of the Talbot County Court House the Talbot County Animal Control Board will present recommended updates and additions to the Talbot County MD Chapter 15 Animals.
This Chapter of the Talbot County Code has not been updated since 2006. Over the past 12 years we have seen massive progress in the way we look at our pets, knowledge on what causes some behavior issues, and laws and ordinances protecting animals in many areas of the country, and in many counties right here in Maryland. We have also witnessed some egregious acts of cruelty and neglect in our own backyard. How can we forget the 300 cats hoarded in Caroline County a decade ago, the 300 Pomeranians in deplorable conditions in Wicomico county in 2016 or earlier this year not only the 100+ horses left to die in Quantico MD, but the kennel in Anne Arundel County where people trusted a facility to care for their pets, and many did not make it out alive?
Our office hears from our community in Talbot County and knows they want to see change. They want to see laws protecting animals mirror our values as a community. They cannot wrap their minds around a dog being out in frigid temperatures, or, an owner being allowed to have a dog live on a chain 24/7.
We encourage anyone with an interest in seeing these changes supported, or, concerns regarding these changes to plan to attend this public meeting on October 18, 2018.
