Frequently Asked Questions
The City of Houston Municipal Code requires that anyone who owns, keeps, possesses, or has control of a dog or cat four months of age or older must have his or her pet licensed, vaccinated against rabies every year, and also have a registered microchip. This helps identify and protect pets in case they get lost. Licensing your pet is the law.
Houston Animal Control deems it unlawful for any person to simultaneously have or keep more than three dogs over the age of six months if within 150 feet of any residential dwelling other than the dwelling of the owner of such dogs.
There is no statewide “leash law” in Texas and in general Texas code does allow owners and handlers to let dogs roam without a leash in off-leash areas and dog parks. However, it does depend from city to city. Houston and other cities do have laws that require dog owners to either leash, muzzle, or restrain dogs when in certain areas.
