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.

Animal traps are available to be checked out from animal control. There is a Financial Responsibility Agreement that must be signed to repair or replace damaged traps. Traps will not be set when the weather is 32 degrees or less or in bad rainy weather. Traps will not be set over weekends.
