Pets

Village Law requires that your pet(s), particularly dogs, be leashed when outside your residence. A loose animal should be reported immediately to the Croton Police Department at (914) 271-5177.

You can walk your pet(s) anywhere on your own lot. You can walk your pet(s) on the sidewalks, but must clean up after them diligently. Individual homeowners own the walkways and they have the right to deny you access if they so choose.

You CANNOT walk your pet(s) in the play area or anywhere in the recreation areas, including the pool and playground.

All pet owners are required to pick up all pet droppings as required by Village Law and dispose of them appropriately (e.g. in tied plastic bags in the dumpsters).

Only two pets are allowed per household.

From the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, Restrictions and Easements, Article X, Section 5: "No animals, livestock or poultry of any kind shall be raised, bred or kept in any dwelling or on any Lot, except that dogs, cats or other domesticated household pets may be kept, provided that they are not kept, bred or maintained for any commercial purpose and provided that not more than two pets in the aggregate may be kept upon any Lot."

Residents should report violators to the Village Police Department at (914) 271-5177 and inform the Board of the name and address or description of the resident violating this regulation.

If you have a valid complaint about a neighbor's pet (e.g. biting instances, running loose, noise violations, unsanitary conditions), please contact the Village Police Department at (914) 271-5177, if necessary, and inform the Board in writing of your complaint.
