(c) Cruelty to animals.–
(1) A person commits an offense if he wantonly or cruelly ill treats, overloads, beats, otherwise abuses any animal, or neglects any animal as to which he has a duty of care, whether belonging to himself or otherwise, or abandons any animal, or deprives any animal of necessary sustenance, drink, shelter or veterinary care, or access to clean and sanitary shelter which will protect the animal against inclement weather and preserve the animal’s body heat and keep it dry. This is the portion of the law applying to cruelty to animals. Stray, barking dog complaints and dogs at large are the responsibility of Animal Control. Checking for rabies and licensing is also the job of animal control. Your animal control agency is contracted through your municipality.
