I haven't been contacted by police but I started getting flyers from different attorneys saying they'll represent me. How do they know about the charge and I don't?
Call Animal Control to find out, they can probably tell you.
We do not have an attorney-client relationship. I am not your lawyer. The statements I have made do not constitute legal advice. Any statements I have made are based upon the very limited facts you have presented, and under the premise that you will consult with a local attorney. This is not an attempt to solicit business. This disclaimer is in addition to any disclaimers that this website has made. I am only licensed in California.
The attorneys that do this rely on the court dockets. One of the letters will probably tell you that charges have been filed against you in a specific court. (Usually, a the justice court in the county you live.) That said, call the court clerk and they will tell you when and what charges have been filed against you.
