PA DOG WARDENS

How Do I Report a PA Dog Attack?

Posted on: July 18th, 2021  padog

Pursuant to the PA Dog Law, there are 3 groups of people that have the authority to investigate and file charges after a Pennsylvania dog attack:

*Your local police/PA State Police

*The PA Dog Warden for your County

*Your local Animal Control Officer

A call to 911 will result in the police initiating an investigation of the unprovoked dog attack. It is the experience of your PA dog attack attorney that cases that are turned over to the County Dog Warden are the ones that are most aggressively pursued and most frequently result in the filing of PA Dog Law charges and/or “Rabies Act” violations.

A key difference between a Dog Warden and a local Animal Control Officer is that only a PA Dog Warden can file “Harboring a Dangerous Dog” charges vs. a negligent dog owner. Your PA dog bite lawyer has had the honor of serving as legal counsel for dog attack victims in 34 separate Pennsylvania Counties. He frequently assists the PA Dog Wardens in prosecuting their cases at the Magisterial District Justice level versus law-breaking dog owners.
