Animal Control

The Animal Control Department is in charge of investigating animal cruelty cases and performing related duties to promote compliance with laws of regulation animal treatment.

The Department observes areas of alleged violations, interviews available witnesses to determine if laws were being violated, and informs those who are committing inhumane acts towards animals.

Animal Control tries to aid animals in distress by feeding starving animals and freeing trapped animals. Removing animals from inhumane conditions and getting them back to the shelter for treatment and care is only the start of the process to finding animals good homes.
