The Animal Control Section consists of certified animal control officers. They are
responsible for responding to all incoming calls of lost, stray, vicious, and injured animals.
While most of the calls are for domestic animals, there are calls from time to time for animals running of a more exotic nature. There have even been a few calls for cows, horses, pigs, and turkeys. The animal control officers patrol the city enforcing City ordinances and State laws related to animal control. The animal control officers also participate in the community by providing animal safety talks to children throughout the city.

Our primary goal is the prevention and eradication of rabies by education of the public concerning local and state laws, promoting animal owner responsibility, and by protecting the public from stray or dangerous animals.

Our secondary goal is to provide service to the public and animals through impound of stray animals and other animal related calls, issuing warnings or citations as necessary, investigation and prosecution of animal cruelty and abuse cases, continued advanced education and training for Animal Care and Control officers, and to strive toward the ultimate goal of elimination of the need to euthanize healthy, surplus and unwanted animals.
