Noise Complaint Form
Before completing this form please be advised that most times speaking with the owner of the barking dog makes them aware of the problem. Many times the owners DO NOT realize that their pet is creating a disturbance in their absence. Also, WE MUST HAVE AN EXACT ADDRESS of the barking/noise complaint to ensure the complaint gets to the owner. By completing this form, please give the owner time to receive a letter through the mail and to take proper action (at least two weeks).
San Diego Humane Society will send a letter to the dog(s) owner to advise the owner to respond to the complaint and to fix the problem regarding the complaint.
San Diego Humane Society will notify the owner that future complaints will result in one of our officers being dispatched to the area for investigation. Depending on the findings, this could result in enforcement action (including prosecution for various violations, court appearances and/or fines), as well as taking other possible measures. This enforcement action will be based on your local laws and regulations.
If the noise problem has led to a disagreement between yourself and the dog owner, we may advise you on to the best mediation alternatives available in your city.
