Any unspayed female dog in the stage of estrus (heat) shall be confined during such period of time in a house, building or secure enclosure, and the area of enclosure shall be so constructed that no other dog or dogs may gain voluntary access to the confined animal except for purposes of planned breeding.

If the dog impounded has no current registration tag and the identity of the animal’s owner is unknown to the animal control officer or the impounding law enforcement officer then such impounding officer shall, upon taking any such animal into custody and impounding the same, make a record thereof, with a description of the animal and the date and place taken into custody and the place of impounding, and shall thereupon immediately post a public notice stating that the animal, describing the same with the date and place of taking, has been taken up, and that unless the charges of impounding the same, together with any license fees due and unpaid, are paid within three business days from the date of the notice, that the animal will be disposed of as provided in this code.

If within three full business days the owner does not appear to claim the dog, then the dog may be sold, euthanized or otherwise disposed of.

It shall be unlawful for any person to take off or remove the city registration tag from any dog belonging to another, or remove the strap or collar on which the same is fastened.

It shall be unlawful for the owner of any dog kept within the city to fail to display a current certificate of immunization against rabies issued by an accredited veterinarian evidencing the vaccination of such dog within two years, when requested by the animal control officer or any law enforcement officer.

"There was a time when the news would have started off with sexual orientation, with 'This is what we always thought about gay people,'" he said. They cover us as if we're human beings." Traces of pride have been evident in Seattle, where Murray had long established himself as an icon of Washington state's LGBT-rights movement.

Before becoming mayor, he was the legislature's foremost advocate of legalizing same-sex marriage.

Among the dozens of prominent Americans entangled in sexual-misconduct cases this year are a modest number of men whose accusers are male.

For some LGBT civic leaders, dismay over these cases is mixed with relief and even a trace of pride at how they were addressed.

Whenever the mayor shall deem it necessary for the protection and welfare of the inhabitants of the city, he or she shall issue an order requiring all dogs kept within the city to be effectively muzzled for such length of time as may be specified in the order, to prevent them from biting or injuring persons or animals.

Such order shall be published in the official newspaper of the city for such period of time as the mayor may deem necessary.

It shall be unlawful for the owner of any previously registered dog to fail to maintain current registration of such dog.
