A to E: Animal Control

Animal Control

Animal Control is provided by the Animal Control Officer, Greg Kendall, under the supervision of the Town of Rye Police Department. Beginning the Saturday before Memorial Day through the Saturday after Labor Day, dogs are not permitted on Town Beaches between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. The  only exception is the area between Wallis Sands State Park and Odiorne State Park where dogs and people are allowed except between the hours of midnight and 6:00

a.m. when the beach is closed. Owners are subject to a $50.00 fine for any violation.

Leashes are not required; however, dogs must be under control by means of personal presence and attention as will reasonably control the conduct of such dog. Dog owners must immediately pick up any waste left by the dog “from public property and dispose of it on their own property or otherwise properly dispose of same.” Owners are subject to a $50.00 fine for failure to do so.

If the Rye Police Department picks up a loose dog, it is generally brought to Woodes Kennels located at 8 Exeter Road Rte. 111 in North Hampton, NH (603) 964-8781 [Hours: Mon-Sat.8AM-5PM, Sun.8AM-9AM and 3:30PM-4:30PM]. If

the dog has a license affixed to the collar (as required by State Law), officers may try to contact the owner before taking it into custody. If the dog is brought to the kennel, the owner will need to complete an animal release form at the police department, before picking up the dog. After business hours, the owner must wait until the next business day when the kennel is open. The dog owner may be subject to a summons, especially if there are prior offenses: contact the Rye Police Department or Woodes Kennels. Also contact the New Hampshire SPCA. Their website has many tips for protecting and training your pet, as well as a bulletin

 

board  for  lost/found  pets.  Do  not  leave  your  animal  in  a  vehicle  while  it  is unattended. RSA 644:8-a [first offense is a misdemeanor].
