A. Any person in possession of a dog or cat in a public place must, upon demand from an animal control officer or police officer, display the animal’s license tag and proof of rabies vaccination, except that a dog or cat properly implanted with a microchip in accordance with this chapter need not display a tag, but must allow the officer to scan or read the microchip. Refusal to display the tag or to allow scanning or reading the microchip is a violation and the animal may be impounded.
B. Owners that choose to have their dog or cat implanted with a microchip shall be responsible for licensing their dog or cat with city and shall pay all required and applicable licensing fees.
C. Any person in possession of a dog or cat on private property that is not open to the public must, upon demand from an animal control officer or police officer, provide proof that the animal is licensed in accordance with this title. (Ord. 6457 § 4, 2013; Ord. 6424 § 3, 2012.)
