Proper Pet Shade Required In Wichita Falls

Wichita Falls City Councilors took action today on an amendment requiring pet owners to provide proper shade for their animals.

They're already required to provide shelter, but the concern is small dog houses may warm to temperatures above ambient outdoor temperatures.

The new rule applies to all dogs and is effective immediately.

Anyone found to not have adequate shade will face a $500 fine.
