Animal Waste

Dog owners are required to immediately pick up fecal matter deposited by their dog on public or private property before leaving the immediate area. They must then properly dispose of it as well. Additionally, it is unlawful for any owner or keeper to allow animal waste to accumulate on said owner’s or keeper’s property to the extent that neighbors are adversely affected by odor or runoff.


If you are having an issue with a neighbor not picking up after their pet, consider speaking with them first. If you need Officer assistance, you may contact Animal Control via dispatch at 911.
