Barking Dogs

Property owners,

One of the items discussed at today’s property owner’s meeting was issues with barking dogs. According to Cumberland County animal control ordinance Sec. 3-15 (Nuisance animals), if a dog bark is considered to be a nuisance, homeowners have the right to contact the sheriffs department or animal control to report and have the issue addressed. Sec. 3-15 (a) (1) describes what is considered to be a nuisance which includes pet owners allowing their pets defecate on another’s property to include landscaping (lawns, shrubs, etc.)

Property owners who are experiencing this nuisance should take the necessary steps to document the issue which includes recording dogs barking if it is deemed to be a nuisance.

Reports of Loose Pet(s) and Pet(s) Waste On Owner’s Property

Property Owners,

The HOA board has been contacted on two occasions within the last two months regarding loose dog(s) or dog waste located on owner’s properties. All homeowners with pets should review the HOA covenants regarding pets. We strongly suggest those with pet(s) take extra measures to ensure that their pet(s) do not wander or stray within the neighborhood. There have been a few instances involving Animal Control that resulted with the seizure of homeowner’s pet(s) in recent months. Its understandable that some pets can accidently slip through or out from their owner’s property and should be handle properly. Owners with pet(s) that are identified to be loose in the neighborhood regularly could find themselves dealing with a very stressful situation if they are reported to and fined by Animal Control. Please respect others property by securing your pets according the HOA covenants. Property owners who are experiencing any issues with a neighbor’s pet(s) getting loose should contact the HOA board via the website.
