The Office of Animal Control houses and cares for animals picked up by Animal Control Officers as well as those animals brought to the animal shelter by private citizens.

Animal Control Officers patrol the streets of the City, keeping the streets free of stray animals and enforcing the ordinances of the City related to animals. In addition, the officers investigate animal cruelty cases, issue citations, inspect pet shops as well as private and commercial kennels within the city limits. Animal Control Officers also handle all animal bite cases occurring within the city limits and complete case reports on each bite case.

In partnership with the private, nonprofit Animal Assistance League, the Office tries to find homes for abandoned animals and works to educate the public on the safe and humane treatment of animals. For information or to become a member, please call 646-4267.
