In January, 2013 the Bernalillo County Board of Commissioners approved significant changes to Chapter 6, Animals, of the Bernalillo County Code of Ordinances.
It is important that our citizens have a clear understanding of the ordinance as it pertains to animal care and control, as well as their responsibilities as an animal owner.
The changes to the Bernalillo County Code of Ordinances, Chapter 6, will be effective August 13, 2013.
This brochure is intended only to cover some of the more significant changes to the ordinance and provide information on where pet owners can educate themselves about their responsibilities. The ordinance in its entirety can be found at www.bernco.gov
