 1) Keep pets indoors when not at home

2) Ensure proper identification with a collar and I.D. tag and identification microchip

3) Spay and neuter pets: sterilized pets are less likely to roam

4) Keep dogs on leashes when outside and keep cats indoors

5) Never leave an animal unattended in a vehicle

6) Ensure that gates are padlocked and fences are high enough and secure

7) Keep pet licenses current and keep a current photo of pets on hand
