Lakewood City Council recently passed legislation banning pit bulls and canary dogs in the City of Lakewood. Lakewood residents who currently own pit bulls/canary dogs are grandfathered into the law but must register their dogs with the Lakewood Animal Control Office. This registration must be completed by December 6, 2008.

To register a dog, owners must fill out a registration form and pay a $50 registration fee. Pit bull owners must also provide a current photograph of their dog, a copy of an insurance policy of not less than $100,000 and proof that their dog has been micro-chipped and spayed or neutered. Other terms, conditions and restrictions apply to the handling of dangerous animal in Lakewood. A full copy of the law is available on the City of Lakewood website at

Lakewood dog owners who are unsure as to whether they need to register their dogs can contact the Lakewood Animal Shelter at (216) 529-5020 for assistance.
