Can I report anonymously? You can begin your report anonymously, but if the results of the investigation of the call lead to citation and arrest of the animal owner, we no longer can protect your anonymity.
In the event of a criminal case, we will need the reporting party to be able to testify. It is very important that you report animal abuse.
You may be the only person who speaks up for this animal. What happens to animal abusers? Animal Services takes animal abuse very seriously.
We will prosecute animal abusers to the full extent of the law. The punishment for animal abuse varies with the nature and severity of the crime. Animal abuse can be charged as a municipal infraction or criminally, as either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the nature and the severity of the crime.
What if I witness a stranger kick his dog? Call immediately and report the incident. The police can usually get to the scene quicker than Animal Services. The Police Department will in turn notify Animal Services to respond as well.
Animal Services will follow up on the incident as best we can. This is something that you might witness in passing and Animal Services and the Police Department may not have any other way to locate the dog owner later.
It is important to get a description of the dog owner, the dog, and the direction of travel. Take note if there are any other people or dogs with the person who kicked the dog.
Get descriptions of them as well. If you can follow the person at a safe distance while waiting for the police to arrive, do so.
What if I witness a person I know kicks or otherwise harms his dog? If I have concerns about the care and condition of an animal, but I am not sure I want to make a formal report, what can I do?
If you feel like it is safe for you to approach the person who you feel is not taking adequate care of their animal, tell them about your concerns yourself. Some people are approachable and are open to suggestions and will change the way they care for their animal once they are educated on a better way.
Do not put yourself in jeopardy. If in doubt, or if you feel unsafe about making contact with the animal owner, call animal services dispatch at and an animal services officer will investigate the issue.
My neighbor ties his dog out to a tree or stake in the yard all day.
No, tying or staking out a dog is not legal. Dogs can not be tied outside to stationary objects. It is legal to create a pulley system and have a dog on a runner-line where the dog has access to water and shelter.What is Mobirise?
