Is the Animal Control Enforcement Team still providing services?

Yes.  Services are still being provided by the Enforcement Team, however they are responding to high priority calls first and evaluating other calls based on available staffing.  

High priority calls include: 

  • Assistance at the request of law enforcement
  • Injured or sick stray animals
  • Cruelty and neglect complaints
  • Bite complaints
  • Dangerous and aggressive dog complaints

Non-emergency calls include non-aggressive stray animal pickups, leash law complaints, barking and nuisance complaints, and conflict mitigation scenarios.  Great effort will be taken to return pets to their owners in the field to reduce the influx of animals at the Animal Shelter.
