As a law abiding pet owner, a host of responsibilities come to rest on your shoulders. Are you prepared? How many pets does your city allow? How often must you vaccinate against rabies? What can you do about a neighbor’s barking dog? Bone up on the services we provide as well as the rights, responsibilities, and requirements of all pet owners.

While our officers are constantly looking out for the welfare of animals, their No. 1 priority is public safety. Because of this, reports of dangerous animals, dog bites, or animals in immediate distress take precedence over barking dogs and nuisance wildlife. Still, every call is important. We rely on community members to alert us when they see stray, mistreated, or unhealthy animals.
