Animal Control

Animal Control is a division of the Argyle Police Department and is currently provided through a private contractor. The following are the services provided by contract through All American Dogs.

Enforcement of Town of Argyle Ordinances

  • Leash (confinement) law: Town ordinance prohibits dogs "running at large". Dogs must be kept confined to their owner's property, or on a leash, if off their owner's property. Cats are exempt from this requirement.
  • Rabies/Registration tag: State law requires all dogs and cats to be current on their rabies vaccinations. Animals should wear their rabies tag. 
  • Microchips.  Animal control is equipped with scanners to assist in returing your pet to you.  Make sure the information is updated through your company.
The entire Animal Control Ordinance (regulations) may be found in Chapter 2 of the Town's Code of Ordinances.
