Animal Control Mediation
The Henderson Municipal Code pertaining to animal noise states:
It is unlawful for any person to own, keep, harbor or possess any animal
which, by unreasonably loud, unnecessary, or frequent barking, yelping, howling
or other noise, causes unreasonable annoyance or disturbance to the neighborhood
or to any person of ordinary sensitivity in the vicinity. In determining whether
an animal's noise violates this section, factors to be considered include, but
are not limited to, the time of day the sounds occur, the intensity and duration
of the noise, whether the sound is recurrent, intermittent or constant, the
circumstances which might cause the animal to make noise, and the proximity of
the noise to others.
If you are being bothered by your neighbor's barking dog, mediation may be able to help. To learn more, call 702-267-2000 or contact us by email.
