Surfside Beach Suspends Current Dog Registration Ordinance

The Surfside Beach City Council approved a motion at their meeting yesterday to suspend the current dog registration ordinance until it can be reworked. Councilman Michael Drake said the ordinance requires all dogs in Surfside Beach to be registered through the town including those coming from out-of-town who are just passing through. Drake also said he was told he needed an updated rabies vaccination to get the registration for his dog, even though he had the records from last year and rabies shots are valid for three-years. Drake expects anyone who has purchased a registration to get their money back.
