Cats are not allowed to roam into other residents’ yards. Cat owners should keep their cat on a leash or on the owner’s property. In 2013, the City Council received more complaints about cat owners allowing their cats to roam than any other type of complaint.

Pet nuisance issues are not addressed by the Graymoor-Devondale Police Department or governed by Graymoor-Devondale Ordinances.

Pet nuisance issues are addressed only by calling Metro Animal Control at 502-363-6609. Metro Animal Control’s actions are usually to pick up and remove the pet. The pet’s owner is then required to pick up their pet and pay all fees due Metro Animal Control.
