Micro Chipping Now Mandatory For Dallas Dogs & Cats


THE BACK OF A STALLED 18 WHEELER. THE DRIVER REMAINS IN CRITICAL CONDITION. DALLAS CITY COUNCIL HAS APPROVED SOME TOUGH NEW LAWS TARGETING LOOSE DOGS THAT HAVE PLAGUED SOUTH DALLAS. AND THE CHANGES WILL AFFECT ALL THE CAT OWNERS. Reporter: YES, THE VAST MAJORITY OF PETS, SO WILL SPAYING OR NEUTERING, BUT SOME PEOPLE BOND FOR THIS NEW LAW MAY BE TOO STRICT. — BUT SOME PEOPLE WONDER IF THIS NEW LAW MAY BE TOO STRICT. THE PEOPLE WHO DO DO IT, THEY DO IT CONSTANTLY. Reporter: WITH HER PIT BULL ON A TIGHT LEASH, SHE HASN’T FOUND A NEED TO MICROCHIP OR NEUTER HIM. Reporter: THE NEW LAW WOULD REQUIRE OWNERS WHO WANT TO BREED TO BE MEMBERS OF A PUREBRED KENNEL CLUB, PAY $100 A YEAR. LIKE ALL DOGS NOW IN DALLAS THEY’LL ALSO HAVE TO BE MICROCHIPPED. BUT I THINK IT WILL MAKE IT HARD FOR SOME PEOPLE. IT IS. Reporter: BUT WITH DALLAS ANIMAL SERVICE NEARLY AT CAPACITY, MAKING IT HARDER TO BREED IS SORT OF THE POINT. ONE DAY LAST WEEK WE HAD 21 PUPPIES THAT CAME IN, 14 FROM ONE LITTER AND SEVEN FROM ANOTHER. WE TRIED TO ALLOW BREEDING, BUT TO RESTRICT IT FROM BACKYARD BREEDER WHO IS ARE TRYING TO SELL PUPPIES ON THE PARKING LOT OF WAL-MART. Reporter: BARBARA HOBBS HOPES THIS WILL GET LOST DOGS HOME MORE QUICKLY AND ENCOURAGE MORE RESPONSIBLE PET OWNERSHIP. THE PET IS REGISTERED TO YOU. THE KID CAN’T SAY OH THAT’S MY DOG BECAUSE THE CHIP COMES BACK TO YOU, RIGHT? I COULDN’T LEAVE HIM HERE. Reporter: CHAD CUNNINGHAM DOESN’T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH HIS NEWLY ADOPTED BEST FRIEND. SEEING SO MANY DOGS WITHOUT A HOME HERE IS HEARTBREAKING. IT’S BAD BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, SOME OF THESE WON’T GET ADOPTED. DALLAS ANIMAL SERVICE SAYS THERE WILL BE A GRACE PERIOD FOR THE NEXT 48 DAYS. ANY DALLAS RESIDENT COULD STOP BY TO GET THEIR PET MICRO CHIPPED FOR $15.
