To report a dog bite, or to file a barking complaint, please call (510) 238-3728.
The Oakland Police Department, not Oakland Animal Services, handles dog bite investigations and barking complaints. OAS Animal Control Officers will continue to respond to dog bites where a public safety risk exists (i.e. an aggressive dog at large) or an injured animal needs emergency assistance and the owner is either not on scene or is unable to obtain veterinary care for their animal.
Please call (510) 238-3728 to report a dog bite or to file a barking complaint.
