Dogs Running at Large

Section 14-19a1, Albemarle County Ordinance, effective July 19, 1973 states that it shall be unlawful for the owner of any dog to permit such dog to run at large on the University of Virginia Grounds lying within Albemarle County. Pursuant to this ordinance, a dog shall be deemed to run at large while roaming, running, or self-hunting off the property of its owner or custodian and not under its owner’s or custodian’s immediate control. Paragraph two of the University of Virginia Dog Leash Regulations of July 1, 1973 was amended, effective October 31, 1974 to preclude the tying, chaining or otherwise restraining a dog to any tree, bush, shrub or other vegetation, post, step or other fixed structure on the Grounds of the University. Any person who permits his or her dog to run at large shall be deemed to have violated the provisions of the ordinance and upon conviction shall be fined at the discretion of the judge trying the case. Dogs found running at large that are picked up by the University animal control officer will normally be deposited at the local Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals pound to await identification by the claimant.
