Animal Control

The Animal Control Division enforces the State and County Code dealing with Animal Regulations that ensure the humane care and treatment of animals and to encourage responsible pet ownership. This includes, but is not limited to nuisance wildlife, the apprehension of unlicensed dogs, unwanted or injured domestic animals, in addition to performing cruelty and animal bite investigations. Animal Control works closely with a number of county and state public agencies, the Tri-County Animal Shelter, and other humane animal groups to appropriately respond to animal related issues.
