BEWARE OF SUMMER TEMPERATURES! (Jun2010)
I have measured the pavement temperatures over 140 degrees in early June and this will DEFINITELY create paw burns on most dogs. Read my temperture study soon to be published. Unfortunately our temperture data shows multiple dangers including sidewalks, brick, blacktop, and even car interiors that can injure any animal. Should a burn occur, we have also listed several actions to take to address the burns.

COLLIER COUNTY ANTI-TETHERING LAW ENFORCEMENT INCREASES (Jan 2010)
Collier county is now an "anti-tethering" county. Dogs may no longer be chained and left alone. Dogs may only be tethered or chained with a responsible party in sight to oversee the animal’s welfare. Additionally, a number of safety precautions must be met such as requirements a tethered dog be six months or older and healthy. The Dangerous Dog Appeals Panel has been eliminated and replaced with the Special Magistrate now responsible for all appeals.

Regarding Trap, Neuter, Release, TNR will allow participating caregivers and DAS to ensure feral cats are spayed or neutered and vaccinated against rabies and to register feral colonies thus allowing for constant monitoring with the goal of reducing the number of feral cats in Collier County.
