IF YOU HAVE A DOG OR CAT PROBLEM:
Harris County Public Health: 281-999-3191
City of Houston Animal Control: 713-837-0311
Houston S.P.C.A.: 713-869-7722
Harris County Animal Services does not handle wildlife issues.
They handle problems with domestic animals, namely dogs and
cats. If you have a complaint about a barking dog or a dangerous
dog or have any questions about lost pets, stray cats, pet
adoptions, leash laws, etc, give the county a call. It is a free county
service for domestic animal issues. The county will not take care
of the raccoon in your yard, the squirrels in your attic, your rat
infestation or anything like that. For wildlife help, see our phone
number below or go to our Houston wildlife removal home page.
What to do when your neighbor’s dog won’t stop barking in
Houston - Is your neighbor’s dog keeping you up at all hours of the
night and day with its incessant barking? There is nothing worse,
especially when you or your kids are trying to sleep! Perhaps the
dog barking is setting off your dog and all you can hear all day is a
chorus of bad barking? Whatever the case is - you have rights and
there are some steps that you should take in order to get the barking
to stop. You will probably want to avoid actually confronting the
neighbor as this can often end up in a rather heated debate. You
should write or type up a small note mentioning the dog barking
- nine times out of ten, the owner will be at work and probably
doesn’t even realize what is going on. Make it short, to the point
and polite - exactly how you would want someone to talk to you
if your dog was making a crazy racket! If nothing happens or the
letter isn’t in some way acknowledged you can always turn to
your local housing organization or landlord if you are renting.
There will normally be noise stipulations in rental agreements,
so it is well worth finding out if your neighbors are renting and
getting in touch with their landlord as well. You will find that most
residential areas have noise control rules set in place, so don’t
be afraid to find out what your rights are. If nothing happens
from your complaint to the owner of the dog and the housing
organization, (or neither of you are renting) it’s time to take a
different approach. This time, grab some information on the noise
control in your area and print them out. Combine this in a neat
little package with another letter, basically saying exactly what the
first one did, but this time mentioning that this is the second time
that you have tried to contact them about the complaint and that
you will be taking the matter further if nothing is resolved. Again,
do not be threatening or menacing in your words or language. If
you still don’t get a positive outcome from your effort, it’s time to
call the boys in blue. You will need to remember that a dog barking
situation is not always going to be a priority for your local law
enforcement agency, buy you do still have rights so you should
report the complaint. Make yourself a log of everything that has
been going on -photos or noise clips of the dog barking, times and
dates and also how long the barking goes on for, all copies of the
correspondence you have with the owner/neighbor etc. You will
need all the evidence that you can get your hands on in order to
get your problem resolved. Get yourself a lawyer. There are ways
around this problem and if it comes to resorting to a small claims
court in order to allow your kids or yourself to get a good night’s
sleep or a nap, so be it!

TOP 7 THANKSGIVING
TRAVEL TIPS AND TRICKS
1. AVOID TRAVELLING THE DAY BEFORE AND AFTER THANKS-
You may have heard that the day before and after Thanksgiving
are among the busiest travel days of the year, but did you know
that Thanksgiving Day itself is only a bit busier than average?
Thread the needle by flying in just in time for pre-dinner drinks,
and you’ll likely dodge the worst of Thanksgiving travel.
2. BOOK AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE
Though this is true any time of year, booking your Thanksgiving
travel as early as possible will save you headaches in terms of
options, prices and agony. We’re pretty sure the film Planes,
Trains and Automobiles was inspired by some procrastinator who
decided to wing it while heading home for Thanksgiving.
No matter your mode of transport, you’re probably going to get
peckish during your journey. Forget the $12 airport tuna melt and
the dubious convenience store burrito, and pack some energy
4. YOU DON’T NEED THAT
You’d be surprised at how few items you need for a long weekend
away, particularly if you’re going to see your parents who probably
have three of everything anyway. Packing light will make your
5. ALL RESERVATIONS
In many cases, booking your travel as a package (flight, car rental,
hotel) through an all-purpose booking website will save you
6. DON’T GO HOME
You know where there isn’t a Thanksgiving travel rush? Every
other country in the world. Flights to Mexico, Central America
and the Caribbean are comparable to domestic flights in terms of
flight time. Or treat yourself to a continental hop.

7. JUST BE COOL, MAN
We just checked the whole internet and confirmed that losing
your temper with a customer service agent, no matter what injustice
you may have suffered, hasn’t ended well for anyone in the
entire history of humankind.
