When calling the Animal Shelter you will often get an answering machine. Please understand that Animal Control Officers are often out of the shelter handling calls or assisting other customers. At times, there is only one Animal Control Officer for the entire city. If you reach the answering machine during normal business hours, please leave a detailed message including a call back number. One of the Animal Control Officers will return your call when they return to the shelter.
Reporting an Animal
Report lost or found animals immediately!
City ordinance 4-182: It is unlawful to possess a stray animal for more than 24 hours without first reporting such possession to the Animal Shelter.
To report a lost or found animal, please email the animal shelter.
If you have lost an animal we recommend checking the animal shelter either in person or by visiting Petfinder.
