If you are a dog owner and your pet is involved in a bite or attack, not only will there be civil ramifications, you will also be at risk of losing your beloved pet due to strict California laws regarding the confiscation of animals deemed to be “dangerous.”
When an animal control order is handed down, PET OWNERS HAVE ONLY 10 DAYS TO APPEAL.
A successful outcome at a Dangerous Dog Hearing will allow a conditional license to be issued allowing a dog’s life to be spared and permit the owner to keep their pet within city limits, provided that certain conditions are met.
Without proper representation at these hearings, pet owners may be at risk of losing their pet. While a decision during a dangerous dog hearing cannot be used against a pet owner during a civil case, a negative outcome will create additional burden and stress on pet owners and their animals.
