You can purchase a dog license at Foothills Animal Shelter by calling 303-278-7577. The Animal Shelter is located at 580 McIntyre Street Golden, CO 80401. Dog licenses are also available at City Hall. Stop by Records between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. M-F. Your local veterinary office can also provide a license. Please contact your veterinarian for more information. NOTE: In addition to the processing fee, proof of your dog’s current rabies vaccination is required to obtain a dog license.
Unattended dogs may be impounded as a leash law violation. A dog is considered unlawful if it freely leaves a confined private property and proceeds unattended into the public right-of-way or surrounding properties. Cats are devoid of this enforcement, regardless of domestic or stray status.
Muncipal codes enforced by the Community Services Team include: Chapter 15 Nuisances; Chapter 16 Misc. offenses against public safety; Chapter 17 Parks and recreation; Chapter 24 Vegetation; and Chapter 26 Zoning specific to residential parking. In all cases, a Community Services Team officer will be dispatched to investigate the complaint in a timely manner.
Additionally, failure to heed citation notification compliance can result in the assessment of abatement costs or a property tax lien attached to the unlawful property. The property will be monitored to expedite clean-up compliance given ‘due process’ notification to a current responsible owner.
