All found animals must be reported to Animal Services. Finders can bring the animal to our shelter anytime during our regular shelter hours or they can request that an Animal Services Officer pick the animal up from their residence. If you are willing to care for the animal until the owner can be located, please let us know when you report it. Please be advised that after five (5) days, you are considered the owner of said found animal and will be responsible to abide by all City Ordinances and State Laws, including rabies vaccination and city license requirements.

All animals that are surrendered by their owner immediately become the property of the City of Plano. While euthanasia is always a last resort, Plano Animal Services can never guarantee adoption for any animal that is surrendered to us and we therefore request that animals only be brought to us when no other housing alternatives are available.

All euthanasia is performed by lethal injection and the remains are then cremated. Owners may not be present when the euthanasia is performed and no private cremations are offered. If the owner wants a private cremation or for remains to be returned to them, they must make arrangements with one of the local private crematories and let us know which company will be coming to pick the remains up at the time the animal is brought to the shelter. More information, as well as links to companies who provide private cremations, can be found on our Euthanasia & Cremation Services page. Visit the Euthanasia & Cremation Services page.

Some simple advice from Jim Dunlap & Tammy Welch of the Plano ISD's Living Materials Center:Do's • Do keep small dogs and cats inside at night. • Do keep the covers secured on your trash receptacles. • Do keep your dog and cat on a leash (as required by city ordinance). • Do report the coyote/bobcat sighting to the DFW Wildlife Coalition (972-234-9453). • Do try to consider that they were here first.
Don’ts • Do not feed your pets on the back porch or leave food out overnight. • Do not walk your small dog in wooded areas. • Do not approach, chase, make noises at, throw rocks at or otherwise taunt a coyote or bobcat. • Do not approach any wild animal that appears trapped, injured, or sick. Contact Animal Services immediately at (972) 769-4360. • Do not ever try to touch a coyote, bobcat, or any other wild animal.
1. Keep your pets at home! All pets, including cats, are required to be physically confined to their owner’s property at all times. Following this law will greatly reduce the likelihood that a pet will come in contact with a wild animal. If they don’t have contact with wildlife, they can’t be hurt by them, but wildlife are actually not the biggest threat to at-large pets. In a study published in the Wildlife Society Bulletin, free-roaming cats were more likely to be injured or killed by car collisions, diseases (mainly from other cats), fights with other at-large pets, poisons (antifreeze, rat bait, etc.), complications of uncontrolled breeding, or cruelty inflicted by humans than they were to be preyed upon by wildlife.
2. Keep your pet's vaccines current! Preventative vaccines are available for many of the most common diseases that pets can get from wildlife and other at-large pets. Animal Services highly recommends that your pet be examined at least once a year by your veterinarian and that you always follow their advice regarding preventative vaccines and medications for common dog and cat diseases and parasites. State law and city ordinance require all pets have a current rabies vaccination at all times and failure to meet this obligation could result in fines to the owner and/or impoundment of the animal. These vaccinations are an important part of keeping your pet healthy and is the first line of defense for your family against certain diseases that are transmissible from animals to people.

Warning A warning is issued when a hazardous weather or hydrologic event is occurring, is imminent, or has a very high probability of occurring. A warning is used for conditions posing a threat to life or property.
What you should do:Activate your personal emergency plan Take shelter immediately Listen to local radio or TV for updates and information on what further actions to take
WatchA watch is used when the risk of a hazardous weather or hydrologic event has increased significantly, but its occurrence, location, and/or timing is still uncertain. It is intended to provide enough lead time so that those who need to set their plans in motion can do so.
What you should do:Remain alert for approaching storms Listen to local radio or TV for updates Be prepared to move to shelter
If you are in a public building or at work during a severe storm, seek shelter on the lowest level of the building. You can also use the fire escapes or windowless restrooms as shelter areas. The expiration time of the warning will be included in the National Weather Service warning message. Remember to designate your shelter area in advance; there will be less confusion during severe weather if the location is pre-determined. Offices should hold tornado drills often.
If you need additional assistance regarding DART, contact City Transportation Engineering staff at (972) 941-7152.

The tax covers hotels, motels, and bed and breakfasts, as well as condominiums, apartments, and houses rented for less than 30 consecutive days.

The purpose of tax exemption is to provide additional funds for continued preservation. The Heritage Commission inspects each structure yearly to determine if they are being maintained properly. The amount of the exemption is based on two factors:
1. Whether the structure is individually designated or the structure is part of and contributes to a heritage district; and2. Whether the structure is used solely as a residence or has a commercial use.
Class A Structures (individually designated and used for residential purposes) receive 100% exemption from taxation. Class B Structures (individually designated and used for commercial purposes) receive 50% exemption. Class C Structures (contributing to a historic district and used for residential purposes) receive 75% exemption. Finally, ClassD Structures (contributing to a historic district and used for commercial purposes) receive 38% exemption. These exemptions are on the value of the structure; full taxes are still paid on the land.
The Plano Heritage Commission protects the rights and investments of property owners and business establishments through a design review process called a Certificate of Appropriateness. By preserving and maintaining visual character, the HC ensures that future generations will enjoy the benefits of Plano’s rich architectural heritage.
• Changing doors or windows• Changing architectural details• Adding/removing siding• Signs• Light Fixtures• New exterior paint colors• Demolition and new construction• Major landscape or pavement changes
However, routine maintenance and in-kind repairs do not require a Certificate of Appropriateness. Many simple repairs or changes may be approved by Staff. When in doubt, contact the Planning Department.
• Restrict the use to which property is put• Restrict the sale of property• Require approval of interior changes or alterations• Prevent new construction within historic areas• Require approval for ordinary maintenance or in-kind repairs

Chapter 12 of the City of Plano Municipal Code of Ordinances was enacted in August of 2004 and establishes that: “the owner of a motor vehicle is liable for a civil penalty of seventy-five dollars ($75.00) if, while facing only a steady red signal displayed by an electrically operated traffic-control signal located in the city, the vehicle is operated in violation of the instructions of that traffic-control signal, as specified by Texas Transportation Code, Section 544.007(d).”
On June 15, 2007, Governor Rick Perry signed Senate Bill 1119, which became effective on September 1, 2007.

The bill also provides specific processes for implementing a Photographic Traffic Signal Enforcement Program, contracting certain duties to a vendor, imposing a civil penalty, and creating a hearing and appeals process. On August 22, 2007, the Plano City Council amended Chapter 12 of the Plano City Ordinances to reflect modifications required by Senate Bill 1119.
