Animal cruelty complaints range from no food or shelter to allegations of animal abuse. Texas State laws and the City of Rowlett Code of Ordinances are specific as to what constitutes neglect and abuse. Animal Services Officers enforce these laws and ordinances.
Rowlett residents whose quality of life is affected by a barking dog may register a complaint with Animal Services. This type of complaint is a nuisance situation for excessive and/or prolonged animal noises.
As stated in City Ordinance Section 6-7, Animal Control Officers will be sent out to the location to attempt contact with the resident about the problem and give the owner 10 days to resolve the excessive barking issue. If the problem persists after the 10 days, the complainant can issue a citation as a witness at the Animal Shelter. After delivery of the citation, the complainant may be called in to testify in court regarding the barking problem.
