Dogs & Cats


Q. Does the City of Aurora have any laws 
on dangerous/vicious dogs?
A. Yes.

DOGS AND CATS; Vicious Dogs; Confinement Required.

In accordance with the statutes of the State of Nebraska, including sections 17-526 and 54-619, while unattended on the owner's property, a dangerous dog shall be securely confined, in a humane manner, indoors or in a securely enclosed and locked pen or structure suitably designed to prevent the entry of young children and to prevent the dog from escaping. The pen or structure shall have secure sides and a secure top. If the pen or structure has no bottom secured to the sides, the sides shall be embedded into the ground. The pen or structure shall also protect the dog from the elements. The owner of a dangerous dog shall post a warning sign on the property where the dog is kept that is clearly visible and that informs persons that a dangerous dog is on the property. If any vicious or dangerous dog is otherwise held or confined, or allowed to run-at-large, the Police shall have the authority to put the dog to death.
