The Town has an annual registration and tag ordinance. All residents are
expected to maintain the health and safety of their pets. Animals should not
be allowed to 'roam free', but must be controlled via a fenced yard, leash,
etc. Certain animals, such as dogs and cats, must receive annual vaccinations
and must display the veterinarian-provided vaccination tag on their collar. To
provide verification of this annual vaccination, pet owners should keep
receipts and vaccination certificate from their veterinarian.
There are various state and local ordinances related to 'animals'. For
example, Griffith residents cannot have 'wild' or 'farm' animals; they cannot
operate an animal-related business except in properly zoned areas; and there
are ordinances related to noise and annoyances.
