This town has no sense of community, no real restaurants besides fast food, no shopping beyond Kmart & worst of all it is completely uncivilized. Dogs are allowed to run loose and the police do very little to enforce the leash ordinance, often citing incorrect information and seeming completely helpless regarding enforcing any ordinances or laws. One cop told me, " I don't walk my dogs in Lemoore bc of fear of getting attacked by loose dogs." Sad. People do not care that their out of control Akitas, German Shepards, Huskies, or pits are prowling the streets LOOSE. Attacked multiple times, many requiring medical attention simply trying to walk my dogs a couple times a day. People are RUDE here & do not expect anyone to allow you to cross the street. Pedestrians DO NOT have the right of way on Lemoore CA. This is a hideous place, trash on streets & sidewalks, a northern Tijuana Mexico. Lots of animal abuse here. Lots of abandoned animals. This place is the portal to hell.
