What is a nuisance animal?
City ordinances(Title 6) prohibit dogs and cats from becoming nuisances to neighboring residents through continual barking, digging into neighbors’ yards, disturbing gardens and flower beds, or other actions that damage another’s property or disturb the peace. Nuisance animal complaints can be reported to Animal Welfare through RequestTracker or by calling (918) 246-2543. Dogs that continually bark during sleeping hours (10 p.m. to 6 a.m.) should be reported immediately to the Police Department at 918-245-8777.
