The Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners approved changes to the Gwinnett County Animal Control Ordinance in 2015. These changes relate to tethering, cruelty, neglect, boarding, and the keeping of livestock. To help you understand the revisions to the ordinance, the Animal Welfare and Enforcement Unit compiled a list of frequently asked questions. These are located on the unit’s FAQ page.
