As a result of Governor Abbott’s March 3, 2021 Executive Order ending the statewide mask mandate effective March 10, Haltom City employees and visitors to City facilities are not required to wear masks. We do encourage the wearing of masks by employees and citizens, and the City will continue practices such as social distancing and regular disinfecting of City facilities.

Haltom City Animal Services issues citations to owners of pets who violate city ordinance regarding animal care and maintenance.

All pets are required to be on a secure leash at all times when not contained in a house or fenced yard. The most common citations issued by Haltom City Animal Service Officers are for "Dogs at Large" and "No Rabies Vaccination". Citations may also be issued for failure to display a current Rabies vaccination tag on an animal. Haltom City does not allow cats to run free. If a citizen feeds and/or harbors a stray cat for more than 10 days, they are considered the cat's owner and could be issued a citation for Cat at Large.

For more information, please refer to Haltom City's Animal Ordinance, linked below.

Once citations are issued, all questions and concerns must go through the Municipal Court.
