Orange County's Animal Control ordinance applies only to the unincorporated parts of the County and Hillsborough (which chooses to adopt the County's ordinance). The Townships of Chapel Hill, Carrboro and Mebane have their own animal ordinances (as listed below).
The links below provide access to the Animal Control sections of the Code of Ordinances of Orange County. They are not intended to serve as the official County Code for Orange County and may not include recent amendments to the County Code. Current information is available from records in the County Clerk’s office in the official minutes of the Orange County Board of Commissioners.
