Animal Control Program
The City is committed to an Animal Control Program that will serve its residents as well as treat animals humanely. The Animal Control Office is empowered and required to enforce Chapter 4 of the Bowie City Code and to respond to calls for assistance within the geographic boundaries of the City of Bowie. All dogs, cats, and ferrets residing within the Bowie City limits must be licensed and be kept on a leash when off the pet owner's property. (A current rabies vaccination is required in order to obtain a license.)
