Animal Control officers enforce County regulations on fowl, poultry, livestock and dangerous animals, including checking for animal licenses and dog tags and controlling stray animals. The officers administer the animal shelter and investigate animal cruelty, abuse and bite/rabies cases.

For the latest data on animals received and their disposition, see the state veterinarian's database.
