Notice of Impounded Dogs - Owners Must Claim by August 28

ZEBULON - On August 19, 2019 Animal Control Officer Tanya Perkins impounded these two mixed dogs. One black and tan unaltered male estimated to be about 7-9 months old and one tan and white female estimated to be about 7-9 months old. They each weigh about 30 pounds. They had no identification tag, no microchip, and therefore no documented owner at the time of the impoundment.

The dogs were involved in an incident on August 17, 2019 where they killed two pet animals. The dogs are now currently undergoing a 10 day quarantine due to lack of rabies inoculation documentation.

"I have determined the dogs to be dangerous dogs per Section 91.04 (H) DANGEROUS DOG C.) While off the owners’ property, kills a pet animal. Per section 91.08(A) (3) of the Animal Control Ordinance, "dangerous and vicious dog” candidates with no documented owner shall NOT be provided a hearing and the original determination by me shall remain effective. Dogs with no documented owner that are determined to be dangerous or vicious shall be ordered to be euthanized by an authorized representative after a 10-day quarantine at the Impoundment Facility for rabies observation," she said. "If an owner is successfully documented during the quarantine period, then the processes provided in the Animal Control Ordinance for dangerous dogs shall be followed."

If you are the owner of these impoundment dogs, PLEASE contact Tanya Perkins the Pike County Animal Control Officer before August 28, 2019 to avoid euthanization of the subject animals. Her phone number is 678-603-7285.
