Residents may contact the animal control office in their county by visiting the animal control division's website and taking note of the contact information provided on the site. Alternatively, you may go directly to the division office to talk with the animal control supervisor.
The animal control division is responsible for investigating animal-related complaints, such as picking up unwanted or stray animals and putting them in animal shelters, removing wild animals suspected of carrying rabies and educating the public about responsible pet ownership. The contact information of the animal control division may also be posted at local pet stores. The Humane Society also provides links of animal shelters and the animal control agencies in your area.
