FORT BEND COUNTY “LEASH LAW” Animal control authorities are permitted to enter your Property to patrol and remove pets. Pets must be registered, licensed and inoculated as required by law. As a dog owner, you are responsible for the control of your dog. If your dog is one that ‘makes objectionable noise,’ you must make every effort to respect your Neighbor’s right to their ‘peace and quiet.’ When your dog is not in your yard, it is imperative that you keep your dog on a leash at all times. While your dog is friendly to you and your family, imagine the consequences if it were to harm someone while it was ‘roaming free.’ Please respect other resident’s right to walk the common area ground without fear of attack from an unleashed dog. Laws are written to ensure that owned animals are confined to their property or kept on a leash to free a community of unrestrained and free-roaming animals. Although most dog bites occur on the property where the dog lives, unrestrained or free-roaming dogs do pose a substantial threat to the public. In addition, unrestrained animals are at increased risk of being bitten by rabies infected wildlife. Enforcement of restraint laws is essential in enhancing the animal control program’s efforts to reduce the risk of rabies in our community. LICENSING OF DOGS AND CATS The primary benefit of licensing animals is identification, should that animal become lost. Licensing also: • Ensures that rabies vaccination are current. • Allows for quick identification in case of a bite incident. • Provides revenue to offset the administration costs of the animal control program. VACCINATION Rabies vaccinations are a prerequisite for licensing dogs and cats because they are an important control measure for the public health threat of rabies. In addition to protecting pets, rabies vaccinations provide a barrier between infected wild animals and humans. PLEASE NOTE - PETS ON LEASHES It is the law in Fort Bend County that all pets must be vaccinated for rabies, registered and restrained. All animals, when outside of an owner’s means of restraint (i.e., in a fenced back yard), must be on a leash. For the safety of all residents, please use all precautions with your pets and keep them on leashes when walking pets in the community EVEN IF YOU FEEL YOUR PET IS HARMLESS. If you see ANY animal roaming freely in the neighborhood, immediately call Animal Control at 281-342-1512. Even if you recognize the animal, be very careful approaching it, as you do not know how it will react; if you can safely retrieve the animal, then call the owner. Otherwise, Animal Control is your best and safest option. ATTENTION! PET POOPS / YOU SCOOP Please be respectful of community grounds and neighbors’ yards. If your pet poops during your walk, be prepared to scoop and trash. Come with a scooper and a recycled grocery bag or anything else. It may not be the most fabulous way to walk your pet, but it does show your respect for every homeowner and our beautiful community. February 2018 | Fulshear Community Newsletter

Family Focus Why They Love Living in Katy “Our family has lived in Katy for over 30 years and we couldn’t imagine our children growing up in a better city. Katy has the hometown feel of the both small towns that Patrick and Melissa were born in. Patrick is originally from Lumberton, Texas and Melissa was born in Hardinsburg, Kentucky. People in Katy are friendly and always willing to lend a helping hand to their neighbors. Katy is “country” with all the amenities of the city and Houston is close enough that if you want to see a major sporting event, concert, theater, etc., you are able to. We love the people and pride in Tigerland!” What They Love to Do This family most enjoys the local parks in Katy, feeding ducks and being in the outdoors. They love to explore the local businesses in Old Katy, especially antique and resale shops where hidden treasures are often found. The Katy Rice Harvest Festival is one of their most anticipated events of the year, as well as the parade and the Katy Rodeo. Love is in the Air How They Express It: “Something you will hear many times a day in our home is one person will say ‘Love y’all’ and you will hear all the other family members reply with ‘Love y’all.’ Levi is usually the first one to prompt this but we all do it when we want to. I think this makes our family unique because we do remind each other through our love language of what we mean to each other, daily.” Celebrating Valentine’s Day: The family gets in the spirit of this holiday by enjoying mom’s decorating in a special part of their home, and indulging in a nice meal together at home or at a restaurant. They give each other special tokens of their admiration for each other and of course, enjoy creating, crafting and delivering their Valentines. What Makes It Tick: They love reminding their family and friends about how much they mean to them, which is what Valentine’s Day is all about for this tribe. Keeping in mind how much Jesus loves them and how He asks them to love one another is also an important reflection on this holiday. Family Roster Dad: Patrick, Machine Shop Supervisor (Precision-Hayes, Sugar Land). Machinist for over 25 years, learned the trade in his dad’s machine shop in Beaumont, TX.

Has played soccer with FFPS since he was four years old, has been a great way for the family to spend time together cheering him on. Aspires to be a singer and will be starting music and voice lessons in 2018! Levi: 8 YO boy. Enjoys playing outside, on his computer, and with friends. Greatest past time is spent building Lego sets. Has also played soccer with FFPS since he was four and the family loves cheering him on. Straight A student, made it to the finals at his school’s spelling bee this year.
