We welcome emails seeking general information. Due to officer safety and confidentiality, we cannot pursue any animal complaints received via email. Reporting parties must provide names and phone numbers and have spoken with an Animal Control employee directly before action will be initiated.
Our mission is to promote public safety and animal welfare through the enforcement of local and state animal control and humane laws; to offer a rabies control program; to administer the proper care and housing of impounded animals; and to provide education, enforcement, and resources to promote spaying and neutering.
