Animal Control

Complaints or Concerns


Some of the common concerns our animal control officer can assist you with include:
  • Aggressive or dangerous dog concern
  • Animal hit by car
  • Barking dog disturbance
  • Dog bite
  • Dogs running at-large
  • Educational presentations
  • Neglect or abuse of an animal
  • Report of a lost or found dog
Because there are no ordinances relating to cats, and because our animal control facility is not equipped to house animals other than dogs, we normally don’t respond to cat-related issues unless animal neglect or abuse are involved. We can however offer suggestions to remedy situations involving cats, including outside resources that may be able to assist you.
