Microchipping Ordinance

Pet owners in Baytown will be required to have their dog or cat microchipped by July 1, thanks to a new ordinance passed by council. 

Health Director Tony Gray said they have worked on the proposed ordinance for the past year. The committee voted on a proposal at its Sept. 15 meeting.
