Animal Services Unit


The Animal Services Unit goals are to provide assistance to our community, lower animal homelessness, return pets that have wandered and enforce laws related to animal welfare. The Animal services officer (ASO) will respond to aggressive animal complaints, loose dogs and nuisance calls (i.e., barking dogs or stray cats or dogs in your neighborhood) as well as provide education to the community on how to be a responsible pet owner.

If a person or animal is in immediate danger from an aggressive dog please contact 9-1-1 for an immediate response from the ASO or a police officer.

The Animal Services Unit looks forward to serving the needs of our community.
