Please Note:    Our agency will not respond to anonymous complaints involving nuisance dog barking or whining.

If you are requesting our help with a noisy nuisance animal, you must get involved and be willing to testify in court if necessary. Our animal control officers will issue fines up to $500 per violation, but you must be directly involved in the entire process, from beginning to end.

Palm Beach County Ordinance allows an Animal Control Officer to investigate an alleged nuisance dog barking complaint, after two (2) sworn affidavits of complaint have been provided to the Animal Care and Control Division. The affidavits must be completed and signed by at least two (2) unrelated people, living in separate dwellings in the close vicinity of the alleged violation. If there is not a second neighbor willing to be involved, then the Ordinance allows for the second affidavit to be completed by a person who works for a recognized business or agency that regularly or frequently provides service in the close vicinity of the alleged violation.

Animal Care and Control provides the blank affidavits for your use. They can be conveniently downloaded here.


For additional questions or assistance with the process, please call our Compliance Officer directly at (561) 233-1213.
