Dallas dog and cat owners object to proposal to curb pets

April 29, 2008

A plan to enact strict new rules for pet ownership in Dallas drew sharp opposition at City Hall on Monday, despite the City Council’s insistence that something must be done to address a massive and growing stray-dog problem.

Pet owners, breeders and dog show participants showed up in force to protest the proposed changes, which include mandatory spaying and neutering of pets and limiting Dallas households to a total of six cats and dogs.

“I do believe there is a stray-dog problem, but these particular changes won’t solve that,” said Sarah Hebler, owner of a Belgian Tervuren she doesn’t want to have fixed.

Many who attended the meeting said the plan will place new burdens on responsible pet owners and do nothing to stop people who don’t follow current regulations.

But city officials, including Animal Shelter Advisory Commission Chairman Robert “Skip” Trimble, said the city can’t stand by anymore while packs of dogs run wild in some of the city’s poorest neighborhoods.
