PUBLIC NOTICE

Notice is hereby given that the Brown County Animal Control Ordinance (now Ordinance Number 71812-14) was amended by the Board of Commissioners of Brown County, Indiana, in open meeting on December 19, 2012.  The following underlined language was added to Chapter V, Section 3, subsection F was added:

F. If any intact dog or cat has been impounded twice within any 12 month period, and those impoundments are due to its owner having violated any provision of this Ordinance, the twice impounded dog or cat shall be spayed or neutered within 10 days of it being returned to its owner.  Within 15 days of the return, the owner shall provide proof to the Brown County Animal Control Commission in the form of a veterinarian's statement or receipt that the spaying or neutering has been done.  Provided, however, that if a veterinarian provides a written determination that a medical reason exists why a dog or cat should not be spayed or neutered, and a copy of the written determination is provided by the veterinarian or the owner to the Brown County Animal Control Commission within the 15 day period, the requirements of this paragraph shall not apply.  An owner who fails to have his dog or cat spayed or neutered and to provide proof of such spaying or neutering or to provide a copy of veterinarian's written determination that a medical reason exists why a a dog or cat should not be spayed or neutered as required by this paragraph shall be guilty of a Class C violation of this Ordinance for each day beyond the 15th day after the dog or cat is returned to the owner and until the required proof or veterinarian's statement is received by the Brown County Animal Control Commission.

The above and foregoing amendment to the ordinance will become effective upon recording and being published twice in this newspaper.  Persons wishing to review or obtain a copy of the amended ordinance may do so between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. at the Brown County Auditor's Office, County Office Building, 201 N.
