Animal Noise Nuisance Complaint

Use this service to file a verified animal noise nuisance complaint online. A violation of this section occurs when an owner, or any person having custody allows or fails to restrain an animal from making a sound common to the species, occurring persistently and continuously for a period of twenty (20) minutes or longer (persistently or continuously shall mean nonstop utterances for 20 consecutive minutes with individual interruptions of less than 20 seconds at a time during the 20-minute utterances). A complaint must be verified, which means the complainant meets the requirements of the Section 19-77(c). Complaints that do not meet the submission requirements of section 19-77(c) or do not reasonably constitute a violation will be closed without further action. Enforcement action may be commenced if a code enforcement officer has reasonable cause to believe that the owner or person having custody of the animal has committed a violation of Section 19-77(c).

In order to qualify as an animal noise nuisance, you must attest that the violation meets with section 19-77 (c) Tampa City code, which can be found on website
