For Dog Related Complaints
Charlestown Township has a Contract with the S.P.C.A. to enforce our Dog Ordinance (dogs running at large) and Noise Ordinance (barking.)
in Charlestown Township
To call in a complaint, contact:
Chester County S.P.C.A.
610-692-6113, extension 212
Leave a message if no one is available to take your call and an officer will get back to you.
For action to be taken, the S.P.C.A. must speak with the person who witnessed the violation. We cannot report the problem for you from the Township Office. One of the officers will take your statement regarding dogs running at large or incessant barking. They will need the dog owner's name and address.
For the first offense, the S.P.C.A. will send a warning letter to the dog owner. In addition to the warning, the letter asks the owner to call the SPCA to provide dog licensing and rabies info and to establish a dialogue to gain the owner's understanding of the problem and their cooperation.
If a second complaint is received, they will issue a citation with a fine of up to $300.00.
