In response to input from residents regarding a proposed animal ordinance, the Aiken County Council voted to table the measure. It could be reconsidered at a July 2020 meeting. The American Kennel Club (AKC) thanks council members for their receptiveness to the concerns of residents. View AKC’s 6/15/20 legislative alert on this issue.
Help Ensure a Fair and Effective Law:
Aiken County residents and animal owners are urged to work with elected officials and county staff to develop a measure that will enable authorized county personnel to more effectively respond to dangerous dog incidents.
