The City of Camilla has an At-large Animals Constitute a Nuisance Ordinance, commonly known as the Leash Law. This ordinance was established as a method to protect the citizens of our city as well as property.

If you own an animal such as a dog, it must be maintained in a proper enclosure except when secured by leash or lead not to exceed six feet in length and held by a responsible, able bodied person. To read the entire ordinance visit www.camillaga.net, click on the How Do I Tab, City Codes & Ordinances, and search for 4.3.30. Other codes that relate to matter include, Noise Nuisance 4.3.2 and Vaccination Proof Required 4.3.31.  

The city has been notified that two dogs, a brown and white pit bull and a grey pit bull with a green collar, are roaming around South Harney, Court Drive, and Camellia Streets areas. This is a violation of the City’s ordinance 4.3.30.
