A pet neglect registry has been added to the city of Laredo website

LAREDO,Texas(KGNS)- If you’re planning on giving away dogs to loved ones or selling them, there’s a registry that’s available on the city’s website and you’ll be responsible to checking it before you give away a pet.

The city introduced an ordinance last year to protect animals from falling into the hands of negligent owners.

The city works with PD in order to gather evidence when they’re making a case against a pet owner.

To get on the list, there is a way to clear your name, you will have to take a course on how to take care of your pet at the Laredo animal care facilities.

There are currently 92 people on the list for having loose dogs on the streets, and 3 for neglecting animals.
