Effective immediately, Douglas County will begin
more aggressively enforcing the laws regarding
animals left unattended in hot cars. While this has
always been enforced, it seems impossible to get
through to some that this is a dangerous move and
law enforcement struggles to respond to all the
calls during hot days.
In agreement with DCSO Animal Control, Douglas
County Counsel and the Douglas County District
Attorney's office, law enforcement will now be
citing a $260 violation for every pet left
unattended for any length of time in a vehicle on a
day over 80 degrees. ie, two dogs would be a $520
fine. Any violation over $500 is subject to a FTA
warrant if the person does not appear. In other
words, this can add up quickly. LEAVE YOUR PETS AT
