Community Standards


Cute dog

Animals allowed to be kept in Meadowcreek Village are those generally considered to be normal household pets: dogs, cats, birds, etc. Exotic animals are not allowed. Neither are animals classified as livestock or fowl.

Leash Law

All domestic animals in Meadowcreek Village are required to be restrained at all times. This can either be indoors, on a leash, or in a fenced back yard. It is unlawful for any person having in his possession any animal to allow it to be at large without the owner or person in charge having direct physical control over the animal.

License / Vaccination Requirements

All domestic dogs and cats are required to have current rabies vaccinations, and proof of such vaccinations must be presented upon request. A certificate duly signed by a veterinarian bearing the date and type of vaccine shall be accepted as valid proof, provided that the certificate contains the identification of the dog or cat by breed, color, and sex, the vaccination tag number, if applicable, and the name and address of the owner.

Aggressive Animals

Aggressive dogIt is unlawful for any person to allow an aggressive animal to be at large. An aggressive animal is one that has displayed aggressive tendencies that cause a person of normal sensibilities to fear the animal will attack that person or another domesticated animal without provocation or has otherwise interfered with the freedom of movement of persons in a public right-of-way, regardless of whether the animal was on the property of its owner.

Nuisance Animals

It is unlawful for any person to own or have in his possession a public nuisance animal. A public nuisance animal is one that substantially interferes with the right to enjoyment of life or property by persons other than the owner by acts including, but not limited to, frequent, long, or continued barking or howling, damaging property other than that of the owner, or is documented to be running at large three or more times in a 12-month period.

Lost Animals

If you lose your pet, you will want to visit the neighborhood Nextdoor and Facebook pages, both of which can be reached through this web site. There, you can post a photo of the missing animal and look for messages from people who may have found it. You will also want to contact area shelters (see below) to see if your animal has been delivered to them.

Animal Adoption

If you are thinking of adding a pet to your household, consider adopting rather than buying. There are so many animals waiting in local shelters, you are very likely to find a new “best friend” at a much lower cost than buying from a pet store or breeder. In addition, you will be giving a home to an animal who desperately needs one.
