Community Cats

On December 1, 2015, the Community Cats ordinance went into effect in the unincorporated portions of Clark County located within the Las Vegas Valley. This program is designed to reduce the unnecessary euthanasia of healthy domestic cats.

Clark County Code 10.06 regarding Community Cats is applicable only to the unincorporated urban towns and areas of Clark County consisting of Enterprise, Lone Mountain, Lower Kyle Canyon, Paradise, Spring Valley, Summerlin South, Sunrise Manor, Whitney, and Winchester as well as any unincorporated area that is surrounded by the boundaries of the cities of Las Vegas, North Las Vegas and Henderson. Additionally, community cat colonies are prohibited within one half mile of or in any conservation area, state or national forest, wetlands, or any other lands managed for wildlife.
