Is there a leash law in Siloam Springs?
Allowing an animal to run loose is unlawful. All pets, including cats, regardless of age, must be restrained on leashes at all times unless confined on or within the owner's property. Each running-at-large violation carries a minimum fine of $25 plus $25 court costs. If an animal is seen and documented running at large by an officer, a 36-month probationary period begins for the owner. Three violations within the probationary period will result in a mandatory court appearance before a judge, and possible revocation of the animal registration, impoundment, and destruction of the animal at the owner's expense. Mandatory court appearance citations may be more punitive due to the discretion of the District Judge.
