Animal control officers handle calls for service involving animals, principally dogs for animal noise, leash violations, and statute required annual licenses. Additional areas of service are animal poisonings, rabies control involving animal bites to humans, aggressive animals, and animal welfare, with regard to neglect and cruelty. Loose dogs are impounded and sheltered at one of the listed locations, and include dogs or cats being held for safekeeping for a limited time. A pet that has been impounded or quarantined may be reclaimed by paying all appropriate fees to the shelter.
