much needed animal control regulations in jones county

How can someone go about getting some form of animal reulations and restrictions in Jones County? I have a neighbor with total disregard to anyone else in the community and practices animal abuse on his two mongrel dogs. Neither one has ever been to the vet for shots, rabies innoculations and now one of his dogs is totally covered with mange. And his one chained dog is vicious and attacked one of my dogs on MY property. The mange dog runs loose and wild all over the neighborhood. What can be done as this is a serious health concern. I am a professional dog breeder who pays county and state taxes to run my kennel as well as a hefty veterinarian bill every year to keep my dogs healthy. Sheriff John Hall said there's nothing he can do. So what can I do to correct this matter? I'm considering a small claims court case if I lose any financial pay because his dogs are creating an unhealthy situation with my dogs and will keep me from completing any sales.
