Farmington animal ordinance vote delayed.

FARMINGTON, N.M. (KRQE) – Farmington city councilors have delayed a vote on a new animal ordinance that would require people to register their pets.

According to the Farmington Daily Times, the council is scheduled to discuss the issue again at its August 23rd meeting.

The city says the revision to the law is an attempt to improve animal welfare and population control.

The new ordinance would also raise existing fines for having too many pets.

Councilors have said they are opposed to requiring residents to register their animals. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
