Disturbing the peace
Hello, I want to make a noise complaint regarding my neighbor\\\'s dogs. They live at 29554 Meadow Street, Santa Clarita. The two dogs are left outside and bark continuously all day and even worse all night. They are big dogs and create quite a nuisance. I know when I\'m home when I pull in front of my home and the dogs start barking right away. Please, please please help!!!! I know I\\\'m not the only one in the neighborhood who wants the disturbance to cease. The other neighbor on the other side of nuisance dogs, talk to me about the dogs barking and they are aggressive dogs and should be put down. Thank you
Santa Clarita Municipal Code

Any animal (or animals) which molests passersby or passing vehicles, attacks other animals, trespasses on school grounds, is repeatedly at large, damages and/or trespasses on private or public property, barks, whines or howls in an excessive, continuous or untimely fashion shall be considered a public nuisance.

I have been listening to barking dogs for 3 years now. (Since I moved to Valencia) You pay a half a million dollars for a house here and you can\'t live in peace. The Sheriff doesn\'t get involved (which is a joke) and animal control doesn\'t do anything. Their compliant process is a joke also, all it does is play neighbors against each other. Michael Guzzo was a man living in the Phoenix AZ area who complained several times about barking dogs, (you can google his name and read the article) This poor guy was going crazy with the dogs and did not get any help from anywhere and one day he snapped and killed a family, their dogs, and then himself. The laws need to be changed regarding dog noise. First of all it should be against the law to leave your dog outside your residence when you are not home. Secondly there should be a curfew to bring them inside, maybe sundown? This a huge quality of life issue and should, without a doubt, be Law Enforcements job to enforce, not a agency like Animal Control.

Valencia Area near Kohls says:
Dogs off leash constantly on the Paseo. I have asked the owner very nicely to please keep his pit bull and dachsund on a leash and I get ignored. This is a daily issue, they walk up the paseo to the grassy public area near Huerta street and Del Monte. I walk my dog on a leash always, and I fear these two will run up on us.

Disturbing the peace. says:
Why won\'t anyone stop this dog from barking senselessly all gourds of the morming moon and night. I can\'t work in or around the house or garage die to his constant annoying bark. It would be one thing if there was a disturbance but in his case the wind blowing is a disturbance. What\'s more frustrating is the owner is home and doesn\'t do a thing to stop him from barking. I have had it and someone better do something. This is
What happens when a renter comes into the neighborhood. I have live here in this house for 15 years and all my neighbors have dogs. They only bark when they see or hear someone or something to bring our attention to. This other dog must be mentally I\'ll to bark as much as he does. I was hopin he would loos his voice but so far no luck. I would like piece and quiet and considerate
Neighbors. Is that too much to ask for.

Gee whiz.. I have been on hold so long that it gave me time to read all the postings.
I just want to report two dead raccoons on Soledad and Flower park area. They have been there for several days. How does the system work? Are the city employees obligated to report such issues to you? The Sheriffs?
Anyway, whomever is in charge of this site, I would suggest you monitor it as it seems like defamation of character by allowing addresses to be posted openly. Shouldn\'t there be some confidentiality in reporting? :)

Animal neglect says:
Hi, I want to report animal neglect. The address is 28312 Sycamore Dr. Saugus, CA 91350. There is a constant stench that is affecting our health and daily living. The owner of the two dogs living at the above address has failed to pick up after her dogs on a daily basis. The stink is so strong that we have to rush to enter our home to avoid the flies entering during the Summer and just long enough to hold our breath before seeking the safety of our home all year long. Today is specially nauseating after the rain. The size yard adjacent to my home reeks of animal excrement and urine. The owner of the dogs doesn\'t experience the unpleasant odors due to the fact that she enters her home through the garage. She doesn\'t seem to care for the wellbeing of her dogs or the wellbeing of the community. I\'ve made formal complaints directly to the dogs\' owner and to the home owner association via my landlord without any positive results. Please I just want the dogs\' owner to take responsibility and to do her duties as a pet owner. We want clean air to breath. Thank you

Frustrated Neighbor says:
The people behind me moved in 12 years ago, and the barking began immediately. I waited a while to see if it would subside, and when it didn\'t, I asked them to please take the dog inside. First, she lied and said the dog in her own backyard wasn\'t even hers. Then she told me it was an outside dog, and never came inside.
12 years. That poor thing has sat in the backyard barking on and off throughout the day. It is never walked or played with. The owners do no check to see the problem when it barks, nor do they try to calm it down and/or silence it.
I made two noise complaints, but was told that was my limit. I\'ve since been told by another worker going door-to-door checking licenses that I was lied to again.
What makes matters worse is that the noise doesn\'t just come from the one neighbor. I live in Castaic by the Middle School, and I swear, the entire area is like living in the middle of an animal shelter ~ people leaving their dogs in the backyard unattended for hours, and in some cases, days, and the county does NOTHING.
For those of you wondering where where to fill out a complaint, it\'s simple.
Above this comments section is a link for http://animalcare.lacounty.gov/
1. Click that link. It brings you to their main page.
2. On the left side of that page is a box that says Animal Noise Complaint. Click that box.
3. You will be brought to another page describing terms. Scroll down to the bottom of that page. You will find a hyperlink for the Complaint Form. Click that.
4. Fill out the form and hope someone does their job.

Liliana West, a local realtor says:
I would like to know if anyone at the Santa Clarita Animal Control reads and/or responds to these comments because there is no indication of that and they are made with best intentions. I just made a report of a dead dog on the side of a road in my neighborhood, but I wasn\'t sure if these are received and acted upon, or the timeliness of such actions, so I waited on the long hold on the phone and spoke with a person.
Also, to the poster who asked if there are any laws against dogs barking all night, I feel for you because it happens way too often in my own neighborhood. The answer is that there is a Santa Clarita City ordinance against this and you can see it here: http://www.codepublishing.com/ca/santaclarita/html/S
When on the site, just find the instance of the word \"bark\" (CTRL F on a Windows PC) and it\'ll take you right to it. Good luck with your complaint!
So I may have my question answered (hopefully :)), here is my contact information: Liliana@LilWest.com
or you can also reach me at 661-433-9378. Thank you for your anticipated response!

A Concerned Resident says:
Two dogs on leashes in a garage. One dog was a medium sized dog, barely any fur at all. The second dog was a very small terrier between 10-15 pounds, brown, short fur. The small dog wouldn\'t stop barking so an heavy, large man said, \"This dog thinks it\'s funny when I tell him to do something\" and proceeded to pull the small dog up by the lease until the dog was hanging a good foot off the ground...hanging from his collar. The dog was hung like that for at least 15 seconds. We are concerned for the safety and well being of these defenseless animals. We tried to call but were left on hold for a long period of time. The address of the dogs is 27925 Arcay Avenue, Canyon Country.

I was on the phone for an hour trying to reach someone ... it would be smart to have a better system in place for when people need to reach you. Looks like I\'m not the only one.
Please send someone out to take care of this. It\'s very sad.
