1. Is there anything I can do about my neighbor, who allows his/her dog to bark at all times?

You may want to contact them personally about the barking. It is much better to get to know your neighbors, but if you feel uncomfortable in doing so, you may file a telephone complaint with the Police Department. The CSO or Police Officer will attempt to contact the owner in person or will leave a written warning at the residence. If several attempts fail to correct the situation, you must be willing to file, in person, a formal criminal complaint listing witnesses. It is also recommended you keep a noisy animal log for at least one week. The animal owner will then be issued a summons and you and your witnesses will be required to testify in municipal court.

2. Who do I call if I see dogs running loose?

You may call the Lone Tree Police Department during normal business hours of 8:00am to 5:00pm, Monday through Friday at 303-339-8150. After hours calls will automatically be transferred to dispatch.

3. How do I find out if my animal has been impounded?

Every attempt will be made to return your animal to you as soon as possible. All animals should be wearing a rabies tag and/or some form of identification. In addition, it is recommended that animals have microchips. This procedure is safe and relatively inexpensive. If an animal is turned over to officers and they cannot readily identify the owner, the animal will be taken to the Buddy Center in Castle Rock.
