Who to contact if you have a complaint about a dog wandering in NZ
If you have a complaint about a dog wandering in New Zealand, there are a few different options available to you. You can contact your local animal control, the SPCA, or the police.
Animal control is the best option if the dog is on your property and you want it removed. They will be able to come and collect the dog and take it to the pound. If the dog is not on your property, you can still contact animal control, but they may not be able to do anything about it.
The SPCA is a good option if you are concerned about the welfare of the dog. They will be able to investigate the situation and, if necessary, take action to help the dog.
The police are an option if the dog is causing a nuisance or is dangerous. They can investigate the situation and, if necessary, take action to remove the dog.
