Living with wildlife can present certain challenges. Here’s some helpful tips.

1. Remove food sources. Pick up leftover dog and cat food at night and keep bird feeders out of their reach (or bring them in at night). Don’t let spilled food accumulate on the ground.

2. Prevent access to chimneys with a commercial cap made of sheet metal and heavy screen over the top of the chimney. Repair soffits to prevent access to attics and install strong, metal vent covers. Keep dampers closed when not in use, but consult a knowledgeable source to prevent a fire hazard.

3. Prune tree limbs away from the roof (10 feet away is best) or install a 3-foot wide band of sheet metal (6 feet above the ground), around the trunks of trees which overhang your house. This will reduce access to your roof by raccoons and squirrels.

4. Garbage cans should be made of heavy metal and have lockable or tight-fitting lids to prevent access; otherwise, keep them indoors as much as possible.

5. Install metal skirting (i.e. strong hardware cloth) around the bottom of a deck to prevent a wild animal from making a den underneath.

6. Provide shelter structures for fish in ornamental ponds and water gardens; cover the pond during the night with metal screening.

7. Cover window wells with grates, bubbles or hardware cloth.

8. Seal up holes around and under home foundations to help keep out mice, rats, insects and snakes. You can bury ¼ inch mesh hardware cloth 1-2 feet deep in places where animals might gain access to your crawl space through digging.

9. Fence gardens and cover fruit trees and berry bushes with netting, or use an approved non-toxic repellent spray.

10. Repair broken, weak, or rotted areas on the roof, soffit, and fascia of your house.

11. Mark large windows with strips of white tape or raptor (hawk) silhouettes to avert birds from flying into the window





Here are some of the most common questions we encounter.


Q. How many animals (dogs or cats) can I have if I live inside Moore city limits?
A.  Up to 4 animals over six months (adult) of age are allowed, per household.  Proper city licensing must be obtained for each adult animal.  (Sec 4-107)

Q.  Is there a city licensing requirement?
A.  Yes, city licenses must be obtained from the Animal Shelter yearly for a fee of $5.00 for altered and $10.00 for unaltered animals over 6 months of age.  You must bring the animal Rabies Certificate to get a city license.  (Sec 4-122)

Q. Can my pet run around outside to roam the neighborhood?
A.  No.  Dogs must be confined to a fenced area or be on a leash.  Cats must be kept indoors or monitored while outside on their own property.  (Sec 4-102)

Q.  If my dog stays indoors most of the time, do I have to have a dog house?
A.  Yes.  Anytime a dog is outdoors, it must be provided adequate shelter from the elements, i.e. rain, cold wind, direct hot sunlight, etc.  A doghouse must be large enough for the dog to stand upright, turn around and lay down comfortably and have a solid floor, or the animal must have access to enter the house or garage, i.e. dog door.   It must have access to fresh, non frozen water in a spill proof container at all times when outdoors.  (Sec 4-144)

Q.  Can I have chickens if I live in Moore city limits?
A.  Only if you are zoned agricultural.  (Sec 4-104)

Q.  Can I have exotic animals (no venomous snakes, lions, tigers, leopards, panthers, bears, alligators, crocodiles, monitors, apes, elephants, rhinoceroses)  in Moore city limits?
A.  No. You cannot own wildlife or any animal considered exotic in the city limits of Moore.  (Sec 4-109)
