- First incidence: We recommend that you try to resolve the issue by speaking with the owner of the offending dog. Often this is all that’s needed to bring the problem to a close.
- Second incidence: You can call 311 and make a complaint. An animal care officer will come to the reported address during normal working hours and speak to the animal owner.
- Third incidence: Complete our Animal Complaint Affidavit and mail or deliver it to the address listed on the form.
