QAC Law Protects Dogs Left Outside in Extreme Weather
$1,000 Fine May be Imposed


  With the passage of a 2018 Queen Anne’s County Animal Control Ordinance it is now against the law to leave your dog outside in extreme weather. Those who leave their dogs outside in extreme weather can face a fine of up to $1,000. The QAC Commissioners voted in favor of County Ordinance 18-07 which states, “Any dog shall be brought inside a home, building or other suitable shelter within 30 minutes of the onset of extreme weather conditions which shall be defined for purpose of this provision as temperatures above 90 degrees or below 32 degrees Fahrenheit or during active weather warnings issued by the National Weather Service or the Queen Anne’s County Department of Emergency Services.”
