Funding for animal control is needed. Loose dogs roam in many neighborhoods in Fresno County and cause residents to feel scared and unsafe when walking or biking. Residents do not want to be bitten by loose dogs. 

In the city of Fresno in 2015, 9,024 live dogs were turned in to the Central California SPCA Stray Center. The highest numbers of dogs came from these zip codes:

93706: 1,945 loose dogs 

93702: 1,127 loose dogs

93722: 857 loose dogs
