Taos County unveils new animal control ordinance

TAOS, N.M. (KRQE), Aug. 19, 2015 – After months of debate and revisions Taos County has a new animal control ordinance. According to the Taos News, the new ordinance requires all pets to be microchipped and licensed with the county. Licenses will cost $10 per animal. If an animal isn’t spayed or neutered then additional permits are required. Those who oppose the new ordinance worry it is over complicated and could cause overcrowding at the shelter there. One shelter is already struggling to stay afloat because of a lack of funds.
