Animal Control

Animal Control

The Animal Shelter is home to Animal Control, a division of the police department. We respond to most animal calls within the city limits. We deal with problems such as barking dogs, animals at large, animal bites, and wild animals. If you have a problem with any animal, whether yours, your neighbor's, or a wild animal that is where it shouldn't be or is doing something you wish it weren't, call us. If we can't help, we know who can or how you may be able to fix it yourself. Call us if you suspect there is an animal in danger, but especially if there is a dangerous animal. Please do not approach a dangerous or wild animal.
Looking for a Pet?
Visit our Adopt-a-Pet page or our Shelter Manager site to find the dog or cat that will make that next great addition to your family. 
Lost Dog or Cat?
If you've lost your pet, call the animal shelter at (307) 352-1455. We keep track of lost dogs and cats so we can get them back home. We also track reports of at-large animals and sometimes this can help you find your pet.
