Animal Control Division Info
Animal Control Officer:
250 Water Street, Bath, Maine
The City of Bath employs a part time Animal Control Officer (ACO) who handles approximately 800 animal calls each year. Incidents handled by the ACO include animals at large, noise complaints, injured animals, nuisance complaints and animal bites.
If a person encounters an animal they consider dangerous, they should immediately report the incident to the ACO through the Police Department. They should also seek immediate medical treatment or advice when needed.
Dog owners within the City of Bath are required to license their dogs in January of each year through the City Clerk’s Office. This is not only a State law, but it is also used as a means to control and identify dogs. It is also important to ensure that all dogs have received inoculations against rabies. Proof of rabies vaccination must be shown at the Clerk’s Office before issuance of a license.
