Our priority for the Field Services section of Animal Services is to help protect the community from animal threats such as aggressive stray dogs and animals that have bitten a person.  We also take a strong stance against cruelty to animals and irresponsible owners who choose not to vaccinate their animals against rabies or provide adequate shelter, food, and water for animals.

If you are having a problem in your neighborhood or witness any violations:
