Living in Orlando
Orlando, FL is a very popular place to live for many reasons. Not only is it the home of Disney World, it’s a home of music, popular culture, and great shopping, dining, arts and education. Did you know that the University of Central Florida is the second largest institute of higher education in the entire nation? Or that it would take five years of eating every meal every day at a restaurant to visit every establishment in the city? It is the home of N’Sync, Matchbox 20, the Backstreet Boys and the poet Jack Kerouac. If you’re looking for fun, excitement, education and culture, this is the place to be!

Orlando Pet Laws and Resources
Orlando is a magical place — in some ways, literally. It is, after all, the home of Disney’s Magic Kingdom and Disney World itself. It has great beaches, a hopping nightlife and fun for residents and visitors of all ages. There are also some great pet-friendly spots to bring your four-legged family members along for the ride.
You’ll want to be sure, however, that you’re up on all the relevant laws, statutes and ordinances regarding pets in Orlando, so you and your pet stay safe and happy all the time. Check out some information about relevant Orlando pet laws and Orlando pet resources with the best pet-friendly locales for your furry friends!
Orlando Pet Laws
Orlando Pet Laws can be tricky to follow, but most are contained in Chapter 5 of the Orange County, FL, Code of Ordinances. These regulate issues like leash laws, dangerous animals, fees and fines, animal trapping, animals-at-large (off the leash), and all other aspects of animal ownership. The most relevant issues to most pet owners include the following:
- Animals at large are prohibited. If your dog is off your property, it must be on a leash and accompanied by you at all times. If on your property, it must be properly restrained.
- If your dog is more than 4 months old, it must be vaccinated against rabies every year. You must keep a record of this vaccination as well as having your animal wearing a tag at all times.
- You must license your dog or cat every year, which can be combined with the rabies vaccination tag.
- Nuisance animals, defined as those who habitually make bothersome noises; chase people, animals or vehicles; act aggressively; damage or destroy property; are unwelcome guests on property not your own; emit offensive odors; or otherwise cause annoyance or disturbance, are forbidden, and citations may be issued, in addition with impoundment in severe cases.
- Animal neglect and abuse are serious offenses in Florida and you can be subject to severe fines and penalties if you are found guilty.
