Reminder: Please Leash and Pick Up After Your Pet
With warmer weather on the way, pet owners are reminded that dogs must be leashed in public, and are not allowed to run loose in public parks. Residents who would like to allow their dog to run off leash may purchase an annual membership to Pooch Park.
Residents are also reminded that City Code 9-4-12 requires dog owners to pick up their pet's waste from public or private properties, as well as have a device in his/her possession to pick up the waste, which should be disposed of in a receptacle. Violations are subject to fines.
Animal waste may contain harmful organisms and parasites, such as giardia, salmonella, roundworm and hookworm, which can be transmitted to humans and result in illness. Please direct questions to the City of Evanston Health and Human Services Department at 847-448-4311.
