Chatham County held a public forum to discuss proposed changes to the animal control ordinance, according to the Savannah Morning News.
Charles Harper, Chatham County’s director of animal services, led the forum held in downtown Savannah’s Old Courthouse on Jan. 7. Harper provided a rundown of the proposals, beginning with requiring dogs and cats to receive rabies vaccinations by the time they are 14 weeks old, instead of six months.
The audience had little to say about this proposal, or on the next one for Chatham County to reinstate animal neglect and cruelty as a local code violation. However, Harper received impassioned reactions about a suggestion regarding animals found running loose.
Currently, all found dogs and cats must be brought to Animal Services, but the proposed changes would only require citizens to file a “lost pet report”, according to Harper.
“Last year, on average, we had about 4,500 animals coming to the shelter,” Harper said, adding that this proposal could reduce that number. “Doing this gives us the opportunity to keep animals as safe as possible and still monitor where they are.”
The audience had few comments when Harper discussed the 10-dogs-per-acre limitation, but a proposal to remove all wording on service animals or emotional-support animals in the ordinance raised concerns about how businesses can address pet owners who falsely claim that their animals are allowed inside restaurants and stores.
The final proposal discussion — regarding the removal of cat-feeding restrictions — drew the meeting’s most vociferous reactions, as the focus shifted toward Chatham County’s feral-cat population and how best to handle it. Several audience members suggested that Animal Services should establish a “Trap-Neuter-Return” program for stray cats.
“The shelter’s not big enough to do a full-blown TNR program,” Harper said, while stating that feral-cat communities would diminish if they were not sustained. “If you don’t feed them, they do go away.”

My name is Big Boy but they could just as well have called me Good Boy, Sweet Boy or Beautiful Boy. I am all of those things and more. Some say I am calm, almost regal. I say I am many things-young (under 1 year old), 64 pounds and I enjoy playing with other social dogs (I’m not a rough boy just because I’m a Big Boy.) One last thing I would like to say is I’d make a great companion and I would love to be YOUR boy. Meet me today.
