Scoop it or pay up — CBJ, GHS announce zero-tolerance dog policy

The City and Borough of Juneau and the Gastineau Humane Society announced a zero-tolerance policy for dog violations today in municipal parks.

In a press release, the CBJ stated "the heightened enforcement is in response to ongoing problems with dog waste and other dog related problems in area parks."

The new policy goes into effect immediately.

Animal Control officers will no longer give warnings when they witness dog owners leaving canine waste behind. Instead, they will issue citations up to $100 and/or mandatory court appearances for anyone who violates the new policy. This applies to all pets and animals that are on or off a leash, as well as those under competent voice control, the release stated.

The Gastineau Humane Society enforces Juneau’s animal control regulations under a contract with CBJ.

Citizens can report violators to Animal Control at 789-6997.
