We (the County of Los Angeles Department of Animal Care and Control) can only accept and process animal noise complaints—including barking dog complaints—from residents of our service area. We provide service to all unincorporated (non-city) areas of Los Angeles County as well as to a number of contracted cities.
The City of Los Angeles is not serviced by our agency (except for small unincorporated areas surrounded by or adjacent to the city). If our agency does not serve your city, we cannot accept your complaint request. Our agency does not have the legal authority to conduct animal noise abatement proceedings outside our service area.
We understand that continuous noise caused by animals ( dogs, roosters, etc.) can adversely affect quality of life, and we are dedicated to helping to resolve such situations.
The following areas handle their own barking dog complaints:
- Carson City
- Covina City
- Culver City
- Duarte City
- El Monte
- Huntington Park
- La Puente
- Lancaster City
- Palos Verdes Estates
- Redondo Beach
- Rolling Hills
- Torrance City
- West Hollywood
- Whittier City
