Animal Complaints

Eureka City Office has been receiving some complaints of dogs running at large, making messes in resident’s yards. Eureka City’s Animal Control Ordinance Section 13-244. RUNNING AT LARGE PROHIBITED, states that:

A. It shall be unlawful for the owner or keeper of any dog to permit such dog(s) to run at large.

B. It shall be unlawful for an owner of a dog to permit such dog to go upon or be upon the private property of any person without the permission of the owner or person entitled to the possession of such private property.

C. The owner of any dog running at large shall be deemed in violation of this section regardless of the precautions taken to prevent the escape of the dog and to prohibit it from running at large.

D. Any dog running at large in violation of the provisions of this section is hereby declared to be a nuisance and a menace to the public health and safety, and the dog shall be taken up and impounded as provided herein.

E. Dogs running at large shall be in violation of this ordinance, and the penalty against the owner of such animal shall be as stated in Section 13-270.

Please try and be a good resident and neighbor by following the ordinances that are currently in place.

These ordinances are put in place to help protect the citizens of our community and make it a healthy and safe place to live and raise a family. If you have any questions concerning this or any other city ordinance, please contact the city office.
