Where does Bay County stand on "Community Cats"?

Bay County Ordinance does not allow for owned, feral, "community" or otherwise stray cats to roam freely in the county. While Bay County Animal Control does not actively seek out feral cats to trap and remove from properties, traps are available for use at our shelter. Please keep in mind that trapping stray cats is a legal option for the removal of unwanted animals and Bay County Animal Control will assist with servicing traps throughout the county. Cats that are located or trapped off property will be impounded and transported to Bay County Animal Control, and any owners of the impounded cat may receive a citation in accordance with county ordinance 4-43: Prohibition against animals-at-large and animals in beaches and parks.
