Animal Control Officer

As part of its public safety commitment to its residents, Upper Makefield Township retains the services of an Animal Control Officer (ACO), Nicole Thompson. She has been our township's ACO for the past twelve years and also works for the Bucks County SPCA.  The ACO’s duties are coordinated through, and in conjunction with, the Police Department.  The Animal Control Officer Duties include enforcing the Upper Makefield Township Ordinances related to dogs as well as the Pennsylvania Dog Laws.

Dog licenses may be purchased from the County Treasurer. http://www.padoglicense.com.

Tips on your lost pet:

• Call the police dispatch number (215-598-7121) once you realize you pet has escaped

• If you live along a township border, also alert that neighboring police department.

• Call the Bucks County SPCA (215-794-7425), your pet may have been taken there.

• Chipping AND registering your pet greatly increases the chance of a successful  return.
