At their November 4th meeting the Lee County Board of Commissioners will be introducing a revised animal control ordinance that essentially repeals a problematic ordinance adopted back in February. The revised ordinance will REMOVE the mandatory spay/neuter provisions, the breeder licensing and inspections provisions, and will reinstate reasonable animal control laws in Lee County. It is critical that responsible owners and breeders in Lee County let their commissioners know they SUPPORT these changes.

The Lee Alliance for Responsible Dog and Cat Ownership has spent the last several months working with Lee County staff to advocate for these changes. We thank these dedicated individuals for all their work in protecting the rights of responsible owners and breeders.

What You Can Do:
Please show your support for these positive changes by attending the County Commission meeting on November 4th. If you are unable to attend the meeting, please email or call the commissioners and thank them for their willingness to work on this issue and encourage passage of the revised ordinance.
