DALLAS, Texas (1080 KRLD) – Around half a million pet owners in Dallas may not be aware that they are breaking the law.

The city of Dallas requires dog and cat owners to register their pets with the city – but out of the estimated 600,000 pets in Dallas, only 50,000 are registered.

Dallas Animal Services Director Catherine McManus says that the main issue is that people are simply not aware of the registration requirement.

McManus and other staffers are pushing to have registration required every three years, instead of every year. They are also trying to find an easier way to deal with the over 350,000 feral cats and stray dogs in Dallas.

City registration costs $7 for animals that have been fixed, $30 for those that have not been spayed or neutered.
