It has come to our attention, about an issue / imcident that occurred this past weekend on the community property with an animal attack upon another animal. As a reminder from our HOA Covenants, we have attached some very important information, – and – a digital copy of the Shadowbrook HOA Covenants for each of you to review and keep.
Please keep in mind, that…
1) – the City/County can impose a fine should they deem it necessary.
2) – Animal Control can also impose a fine and impound the offending pet / animal if necessary.
3) – Any pet owner can be sued / litigated in court by anyone that gets injured or has damages due to accident or purposeful negligence, if necessary.
4) – This is also thoroughly covered within the Shadowbrook HOA covenants that each resident already signed. ( RE-download a copy at https://shadowbrooktchoa.com/resources/hoa-covenants/ SEE Exhibit “C” and section “F” circa pages 54 – 55 )

Sec. 10-29. – Restraint.
(a) It shall be unlawful for any owner or possessor of any dog to fail to keep the dog under restraint or control as provided for in this section.
(b) A dog is considered not under restraint or control when it is running at large, whether wearing a collar and tag or not. Reasonable care and precautions shall be taken to prevent the dog from leaving the real property limits of its owner, possessor, or custodian, and to ensure that:
- (1) It is securely and humanely enclosed within a house, building, fence, pen or other enclosure out of which it cannot climb, dig, jump, or otherwise escape on its own volition, and that such enclosure is securely located at any time the animal is left unattended; or
- (2) It is securely and humanely restrained by an invisible containment system. If using an invisible containment system, a sign must be posted on the property indicating that the system is in place; or
- (3) It is on a leash and under the control of a competent person, or it is off leash and obedient to and under voice command of a competent person who is in the immediate proximity of the dog any time it is not restrained as provided for in subsection (1) or (2) above while on the owner’s property.
