Animal Control

The Animal Control Division is committed to the enhancement of responsible pet ownership for all animals. We respond to requests for service regarding dogs and cats running at large, animal neglect and abuse, injured animals and wild animals inside the living areas of a home.


We investigate livestock neglect and abuse complaints and rescue domestic animals caught in life threatening conditions. We inspect and license dog and cat boarding and breeding facilities, as well as animal rescue facilities and foster-care homes.

We maintain a "lost and found" canine and feline list of animals reported to us. We also operate the Animal Control Center, as a rabies quarantine facility and temporary housing facility for dogs and cats available for rescue and adoption.


The Animal Control Division enforces Chapter 215: Animal Control Order to protect public health and safety by reducing the number of at-large animals in the County
