NORTH MIDDLETON TOWNSHIP POLICE DEPARTMENT ENFORCES THE
TOWNSHIP ANIMAL ORDINANCE.
The ordinance covers dogs running at large, making loud or harsh
noises on a continuous basis, and urinating or defecating upon any
public sidewalk, walkway or property of any other person.
Fines can range from $200.00 to $600.00.
NEW INFORMATION FOR RESIDENTS REGARDING STRAY DOGS/CATS
Residents who have a stray dog or feral cat should transport the animal to the Human Society facility located at 7790 Graystone Road in Harrisburg. Prior to transport, they must first respond to the Police Department and obtain either a “Humane Society Drop-off Authorization Form” or a “Spay/Neuter Voucher Form.” Before one of these forms is issued, proof of residency within the township in the form of a driver’s license must be displayed. The form must then accompany the animal to the facility. The Human Society will not accept an animal without one of the authorization forms. The resident will personally be responsible for the drop-off fee.
Feral (wild) cats can no longer be taken to the facility for euthanasia. Feral cats instead must be spayed or neutered and returned to their original location. This procedure has become necessary for the township to track the number of stray dogs and cats being dropped off for fiscal purposes.
If you have any questions, please call the police department at 243-7910, Monday through Friday from 7:30AM and 4:00PM
