Animals and pets


We encourage our customers to use online services. Customers may also make appointments with staff.

Domestic animals enrich the lives of many county residents. However, if not cared for properly, these animals also can be disruptive to a neighborhood. Animal Protection and Control can help resolve animal control problems such as stray or vicious animals, animal-related emergencies and reports of animal cruelty.
