Grace period ends, fines to begin for Houston’s pet microchip ordinance

Summary by Ground News
The ordinance was passed with the understanding that there would be a one-year grace period in which fines wouldn't be levied on offenders. That grace period ended Wednesday, and now a pet owner can receive a fine of between one and five hundred dollars if their dog or cat isn't microchipped. BARC, the city's animal control and shelter agency, says the goal isn't to collect fines.
