Field Services enforces state statutes and county ordinances regulating animal care and welfare, investigates citizens' complaints of animal neglect or nuisance, and responds to reports of loose and injured animals. Animal Services also inspects and licenses animal establishments and kennels.
Rabies Control Program
The Rabies Control Program investigates animal bites and human exposures to rabies, provides low-cost rabies vaccinations, and processes licenses for dogs. Learn how to avoid dog bites, and teach children to be safe around dogs. Report animal bites or rabid animals.
Shelter Operations houses and cares for stray, unwanted, or displaced animals. Every effort is made to place healthy, adoptable animals in new permanent, loving homes. Shelter Operations also coordinates foster and volunteer programs, educates the community on pet overpopulation, and assists people who have lost or found a pet.
