The Animal Services Officer is responsible for dealing with aspects of animal related issues, including dog fouling, nuisance complaints, dangerous dogs, and general advice.
The Animal Services Officer also works alongside the Licensing Team to inspect and issue animal licences.
Bite Back Campaign
The Blaby District Bite Back campaign has been launched to give local residents, organisations and farmers the opportunity to highlight the issue of irresponsible dog ownership in the district.
Irresponsible owners of dogs can cause serious issues across the local area. Dogs not under control in rural areas can cause damage to farmers and livestock. Failing to pick up after a dog in a rural area can cause devastating effects if the dog faeces is carrying disease.
