Placer County\'s Proposed - Excessive Animal Noise Ordinance

While the peace and tranquility of our environment is as precious as the air we breathe, it does not justify cruel treatment of animals. In the proposed Excessive Animal Noise Amendment, the


PLACER AREA ANIMAL COALITION Created to provide a pro-active and open forum for the discussion of all topics relating to the health and welfare of domestic animals, PAAC invites its members to educate, enlighten, debate, inform, organize and build relationships that serve this goal.


For more information on PAAC, send an e-mail to: type: info paac in the body of the message (Be sure to LEAVE THE SUBJECT LINE BLANK). For a reading of the most current version of: Excessive Animal Noise amendment visit: For copies of current Placer County Code visit:

    7 years ago Comments: One of the ways dogs express themselves is by barking, may it be because there is some one near the door, or there is other animals near (eg. deer), an intruder in the house, a person in distress, and the list may go on and on. Although extreme barking may also be a sign of solitude or separation anxiety, it does not warrant "surgical debarking". My neighbor ,who is at home all the time, fights and shouts often from her backyard and no one is even suggesting a "surgical devoicing" procedure for her, so why can some one dare to suggest it to be done to our best friends, dogs. If some of us are so freaked by barking, we should contemplate better insulating our houses and windows to achieve it. "Surgical Debarking" should be banned, it also should be branded as animal cruelty!
