What if I see a neglected animal?
Call the office with the address or good directions if the location is something not marked, such as a pasture. Take photos if possible. Animal Control has a series of legal steps that must be followed to handle neglect cases. Unless the animal is in a life threatening situation, we cannot immediately seize it. Please resist the urge to feed and water the animal. The Animal Control Officer needs to document the conditions for evidence in a hearing or in court.

Everyone has personal opinions about the right way to treat and maintain animals but keep in mind that Animal Control can only intervene if the law is being broken.
