Animal Shelter's Website

The Animal Control Department, a division of the Police Department, is charged with enforcing all laws relating to animals; educating residents relative to the caring and keeping of animals; and providing for the humane treatment of animals that come into the Town's custody.

Animal Control is responsible for enforcing the "pooper scooper" law; the 24-hour leash law that requires all dogs off private property to be on a leash at all times; and the banning of dogs from parks and beaches from May to October. 

The town has established several By-laws pertaining to the keeping of animals. These are found in Chapter 13 of the General Codes.

Fines
Violators are served a summons and fines are payable to the Town of Marblehead at the Town Clerk's office
