Acworth, GA asked in Animal / Dog Law and Municipal Law for Georgia

Q: Are there dangerous dog ordinances in Alabama? Specifically Glencoe City? Do all cities abide by state ordinances?

I am trying to move a dog that may potentially be deemed "dangerous" in the state of Georgia to Alabama. I am trying to research and find out if Alabama has Dangerous Dog Ordinances as a state or if cities and counties all have separate ones?!

A: Most cities and counties have the local ordinances online. A good resource / website is Laws vary from State to State and even City to City. You can also visit the local animal control website or contact animal control to find out more information. Good luck.
