Animal Control

 

The Animal Control Officer is to enforce the county and state ordinances, laws and resolutions related to animals. The Officer will also answer citizen requests to pick up stray, sick, nuisance or confined animals. The Officer will also respond and take reports of animal bites, injured animals, animals displaying aggressive behavior and rabies suspects.

Please remember to have your animals spayed or neutered.
