Welcome to Animal Control

  • About Animal Control

    The Animal Control is a public health and safety enforcement agency dedicated to protecting people from animals, and, animals from people.

    "The Animal Control Motto"

    Treat everyone that we meet as we wish to be treated - treat every animal as if it were our own.

  • Lost and Found Program

    All animals not wearing a current dog license will be impounded at the applicable animal shelter. Animals running loose in a "Leash Law" area will also be impounded regardless as to whether they are wearing a current license or not.

    Cats are not applicable for licensing but may be impounded if they are trapped due to nuisance issues. To see if your missing dog or cat is at the local shelter, please call (760) 932-5582 as soon as possible.
