Animal Control

Animal Control

Laws dealing with all types of animals are addressed in Green Codified Ordinance §618. Many topics are covered in this section, including a requirement that owners of dogs and other animals keep them confined or restrained on the owner's property, as well as the City of Green's "scooper law." Nuisance conditions such as barking, offensive odors, and property damage are also covered under this Ordinance.

Animal Control Laws are enforced by the Summit County Sheriff's Department, which can be contacted by calling (330) 643-2181. The City also contracts with Summit County Animal Control for animal control issues, and they can be reached by calling (330) 643-2845.
