About

The Animal Control Officer is responsible for enforcing laws about domestic animals. He or she investigates reports of animal abuse and nuisance animals, such as roaming dogs. The ACO has the authority to remove and impound animals and to issue citations to people who are not complying with laws relating to the keeping and care of animals.

The Town of Scotland does not allow commercial kennels, defined as any location in which five or more adult dogs are kept. Operators of illegal kennels are subject to citation. Their animals can be removed, impounded, and placed by the ACO.

Reports of rabid or nuisance wildlife should be reported to DEEP at 860-424-3333. Many animals, including foxes, raccoons, and coyotes, can carry the rabies virus, and can transmit it to humans. Please be familiar with the signs of rabies and exercise caution around animals you suspect may have the disease. 

To report a complaint about a dog, please contact the Animal Control Officer, using the contact information on this page. As with any enforcement action, the ACO can only confirm that an investigation is under way. Details are not public. Once the investigation is closed, information on the disposition of the case can be obtained through the office of the First Selectman.
