Animal Leash Ordinance
Travis County and the City of Austin have enacted regulations in an effort to maintain safety with respect to unrestrained dogs. Dogs must be restrained on the owner's property and leashed off of the owner's property. Repeatedly violations of stray dog can result in having that dog impounded.
It is recommended that all dogs have an ID tag attached to a collar so that owners can be contacted.
Call 311 to report stray dogs. More information can be found in the PDF below.
