The Town of Cape Charles wants to remind everyone that dogs are not permitted on the beach between the hours of 9:00 AM to 8:00 PM from May 1 through Labor Day per Town Code Section 50-191(a)(5). Also, dogs are not permitted to be on the fishing pier at any time from May 1 through Labor Day.
If you have your dog on the beach during the permitted hours, please be courteous and pick up the waste and do not bury it in the sand for someone else to find. There are a number of doggie waste stations along the boardwalk which contain bags for your convenience. Failure to comply could result in the assessment of a fine of up to $250 per incident.
At all times, throughout the Town, dogs must remain on a leash or other physical restraint or have an electronic collar.

A 70 pound mutt puts out 135 gallons of foul smelling urine a year. How will nutters pick that up?
