Report a Park Problem
Users of The Paw Park do so at their own risk. Neither the City of Amherst nor The Paw Park Off-Leash Group shall be liable for any injury or damages sustained at The Paw Park. Dog owners are legally responsible for their dog's actions and are liable for any injuries caused by their dog.
In the event that you or your dogs are hurt by another dog or individuals, you should:
- 1. Call 911 if there is a serious life-threatening injury to a human.
- 2. Seek medical attention immediately. If your dog has been injured it is important to have your dog checked by a veterinarian as soon as possible. Often it can seem like a dog is not injured during a conflict/scuffle, but the contact between dogs can lead to a serious infection that is not visible until later on.
- 3. Exchange contact information with the other dog(s) handler and collect contact information from any witnesses. Take photos of handlers and dogs involved if it is safe to do that. Recording license plate info. could be helpful.
- 4. Report the incident to the Amherst Police at (716) 689-1311. It is important to make this report because if this dog or dog handler has been involved in multiple incidents a report could prevent future injuries.
