Is there a law for barking dogs?

Yes.

A barking dog which disturbs someone either during the day or at night can be considered a nuisance. We recommend that dogs be brought in at night and if it is discovered that they are barking during the day (usually when the owner is at work) the dog may need to wear a bark preventative collar. If the dog continuously disturbs people around it, the owner can be issued a citation.

What do I do if I have lost my pet?
If your pet becomes lost, 
  • Look closest to home first
  • Check with local veterinary clinics, notify neighbors, search found ads in local newspapers
  • Contact the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter
  • Contact other animal shelters in your area.
Where do I get a pet license?
You can get a pet license from your veterinarian or contact the Police Department.
Why should my pet be spayed/neutered?
The most important reason to spay or neuter your pet is to prevent pet over population. It helps dogs and cats live longer, healthier lives.
Is there a leash law for cats?
The City of Round Rock has a nuisance law pertaining to cats. Once a cat leaves its yard it can be considered a nuisance and be impounded. 
What are the animal shelter hours?
Animals impounded by the Round Rock Animal Control Unit are sheltered at the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter (512) 943-3322. Check the shelter's web site for its hours of operation.
My home is in a historic overlay district. Will my pets be affected?
No, restrictions on animals within the City limits are not changed due to historic overlay zoning.
How much does it cost to adopt a pet?
Adoption fee is $80 which includes the spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, testing, anti-parasitic treatment and a pet health exam.
How do I register my dog or cat?
An animal may be registered at the Animal Control Office or any local veterinarian during business hours.
Is there a leash law for dogs?
Yes. The City of Round Rock has a leash law which states that dogs are to be contained in a fenced yard, tied out, or on a leash at all times. This prevents them from endangering themselves, other animals or the public.
