What happens when a dog bite is reported?

The City's contractor, All American Dogs (AAD), first secures the animal. They then get information on the bite victim and dog owner. They then verify the animals shot records. If the animal's shots are current and the owner has the ability to secure the animal for 10 days, then a home quarantine may be authorized. If the animal's records are not current, then the owner must quarantine the animal within 24 hours at a certified facility, which can be a local vet or at the AAD facility. Lastly, AAD will finalize the bite report upon completion of the quarantine period.
