Animal Owners

 

As a reminder, all dogs and cats living inside the city limits are required to be registered with the city and wear proof of registration on their collar. Animal registrations are valid for one calendar year from January to December through purchase at City Hall. We will attempt any reasonable means to contact the owner of an animal that we have picked up. However, if the owner cannot be identified, the animal will be held for six days before being put up for adoption if adoptable. Dogs that are currently in our kennel will be posted on the City’s Facebook page. Should you see your dog listed there, or are interested in adopting a dog posted there, please contact us at 479-787-6948 within the six days.

Victim Rights Information

 

“Pursuant to the Arkansas Victim Rights Act of 1997 and Act 873 of 2015 (Laura’s Law), Arkansas law enforcement is required to provide information for victims of domestic abuse crimes. This information has been assembled into a format called “Laura’s Card” to provide victim rights and necessary contact information in a clear and concise format that is standardized throughout the state.

 

Our officers are required to furnish these pamphlets to the victim of any domestic violence crime so that victims are made aware of medical and housing services. Counseling, financial, social, legal, and emergency services contact information is also provided. In addition, the pamphlet also contains information about obtaining orders of protection, directions on how to access public records related to the case, and contact information for the Arkansas Crime Victims Reparations Boards. The card also includes a web link to information about signing up for the VINE program, which notifies victims automatically when an incarcerated individual is released from a jail or prison.

 

In addition to the officers of the Gravette Police Department handing out this information during crime incidents, we would like to make it available here for reference. Should you have any questions, please contact our office at 479-787-6948.
