The Animal Control Department is charged with enforcing City Ordinances concerning animal control. Some of our responsibilities are enforcing the leash laws, removal of vicious and stray animals, animal rescue, facility maintenance and capture and removal of wild animals. In additional to picking up stray or wanted dogs and cats we remove dead animals from city streets and set traps for other non-domestic animals. We also investigate all cruelty calls.
