In 2012, the DeKalb Animal Task Force submitted recommendations to the DeKalb County CEO and Board of Commissioners for the improvement of animal welfare. The recommendations included revisions to Chapter 5 of the DeKalb County Code governing Animal Services and Enforcement. The revisions to Chapter 5 are based on Task Force Recommendations with additional input from the DeKalb County Animal Advisory Board and LifeLine Animal Project. In addition to the Task Force recommendations, changes to Georgia state law are incorporated into the drafts provided in the Legislation section of the DeKalb County website, or in pdf form here.
