Reminder - El Dorado County Animal Services is reminding residents to use caution when recreating at lakes, rivers or ponds where potentially dangerous algae may be present. To avoid possible cyanobacterial toxin poisoning, practice healthy water habits. Dogs can be especially susceptible when algal mats are present. Do not let your dog drink water or enter water where patches of algae are present, or to eat scum or algal material. Be sure to wash your pets with clean water after lake or river play. Provide clean drinking water. For more information, visit https://mywaterquality.ca.gov/habs/what/index.html or https://mywaterquality.ca.gov/habs/resources/domestic_animals.html
Own livestock? Animal Services is updating its database of livestock/farm animals (cattle, equine, swine, sheep, llama, goats, etc.). With your information in our database, we can give you a courtesy call if your farm animals get loose. Some restrictions apply. Follow this link to complete the form.
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.Non-Emergency Complaint Forms / Ordinance Code
The Rabies Control Program investigates animal bites and human exposures to rabies, 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 into new permanent, loving homes. We coordinate foster and volunteer programs, educate the community on pet overpopulation, and help people who have
found a pet.
