  Helpful Ways to Protect Your Family

To help residents and their pets protect themselves form wild and undomesticated animals we encourage citizens to do the following:

Do Not leave trash or food waste out in the open or in open containers.

Make sure all domestic pets are properly vaccinated.

Do Not feed wild or stray animals

Elevate bird feeders to reduce the ability of unwanted animals to access food.

Report any animal that displays unusual behavior or appears sick.
