WHO WE AREThe Animal Control Department plays a vital role in ensuring the safety and well-being of both residents and animals within our community. Our dedicated team is responsible for a range of duties, including responding to animal-related complaints, enforcing local animal ordinances, rescuing and sheltering stray or injured animals, and facilitating pet adoptions.

How do I get a license for my dog?
Your dog must first get a rabies vaccination. This vaccination protects against the rabies virus. Dog licenses may be purchased at City Hall. Rabies vaccination and spay or neuter certificates must be presented at the time of licensing an animal. For more information, please visit the Get a Dog License page.
