Animal Control


No owner or keeper of any dog kept within the legal limits of the Town of Lovell shall allow such dog to unnecessarily annoy or disturb any person by continued or repeated barking, howling or other loud or unusual noises any time day or night.

Upon written complaint by the person disturbed, signed and sworn to, any constable, duly qualified law enforcement official, animal control officer or person acting in that capacity of the Town of Lovell may investigate and may give written notice to the owner or keeper of such dog that such annoyance or disturbance must cease.

The warning shall be made part of the complaint. Thereafter, upon continuance of such annoyance or disturbance, such owner shall be guilty of a civil violation and upon conviction thereof shall be punished by a fine of $50.00 for the first offense. Each additional conviction after the first conviction shall be punished by a fine of $50.00. All assessed and attorney fees shall be recovered for the use of the Town of Lovell through District Court.
