Dogs and Animals in Boulder
As human population grows, people and wildlife often find themselves living in the same area. When wildlife habitat, food, and water resources disappear, animals often look for food and nest sites in homes and garages. Learn how to reduce wildlife-related problems in and around your home and how to keep Colorado's wildlife populations healthy.
Sick or Injured Animals
If a cat is causing a nuisance by defecating or destroying property, a property owner has the legal right to remove the cat from their property and bring it to the local animal shelter. The guardian may also be charged with owning a nuisance cat. Impound and board fees apply to impounded cats.
Cats should be vaccinated for rabies annually and wear an I.D. tag. City of Boulder Animal Control will impound cats that have bitten a person or are sick or injured.
The City of Boulder offers dog guardians and their dogs many opportunities to enjoy the nature that's right in our backyards.
It is your responsibility as a dog guardian to read and understand the regulations so that everyone can enjoy their visit on city-owned property.
