Animal Shelter

The Animal Control Division is responsible for Animal Code enforcement including control of dangerous or vicious animals, impoundment of animals found at large, providing humane animal traps for resident use, relocation of trapped animals, and rabies monitoring and control.

Helpful Tips

  • Always keep current identification on your pet
  • Do not assume your pet will come home on his own - report your lost pet immediately 
  • Introduce your pet to your neighbor so they are familiar with your pet
  • Keep a current picture of your pet


All dogs and cats are required by the City to have a City registration by the age of four months. For more information, please view Registration.
