Florala residents believe it's just a matter of time before someone is seriously injured or even killed by a stray dog.
Florala residents simply let their dogs' wander the neighborhood. That's despite a leash law in effect, which states a dog must be on a leash if out in the public.
Glenda Fountain, a Florala resident, says her nieces have almost been killed by these animals.
"They have two or three dogs roaming here. One killed a small dog on a chain, and I would think it could just as easily have attacked a child," says Fountain.
Chief Mark Anderson with Florala Police says it's a real problem and getting worse.
“The city does not have the funds for an animal control officer. It is a disaster waiting to happen,” Chief Anderson said. "You have a child going to his bus stop, he's attacked by a dog, and then you have a pack mentality and that child is being mauled."
At this time, stray animals must be transported nearly 30-miles away to a shelter in Andalusia.
Florala Mayor Danny Franklin tells News 4, he expects the town council to revisit animal control following several recent dog bite incidents.
