Dogs on the beach

We have several ordinances pertaining to dogs. These can be found under Section 4-16 of the Kure Beach Code of Ordinances.

For instance, it is unlawful for owners to allow their dog to be off their property without being on a leash or restraint which shall not exceed fifteen (15) feet in length.

It is also unlawful for anyone to take the animal off its own property limits without the means of removal of pet feces.

Persons in possession of the animal must immediately and properly remove and dispose of their animal's feces from any area within the limits of the Town of Kure Beach, except their own private property.

Additionally, it shall be unlawful for any person to have or allow their dog to be upon the beach strand of Kure Beach during the period of April 1 through September 30 of each year.
