Idaho Falls Wants Misdemeanors for Non-Compliant Pet Owners
(IDAHO FALLS, ID) – The Idaho Falls City Council wants to change the Animal Control Ordinance. Under current laws, those who adopt shelter pets are required to spay or neuter their new animals, the cost of which is covered by the adoption fee. The new measure would make it a misdemeanor to not complete the procedure within 30 days. Exceptions would be made for young animals, as well as those that are ill. A vote on the ordinance will take place this evening.
