Animal Control

The Police Department staff includes Community Service Officers responsible for control of domestic animals and pets. A city ordinance forbids allowing dogs, cats or other domestic animals to run at large beyond the land limits of the owner. This means your pets must be leashed and under your control when off your property. Also, owners are responsible for cleaning up after their pet when walking it off their property. Call 651-714-3600 to register a complaint with the animal control officer or request service online.

More information about animal ordinances can be found in Chapter 5 of the City Code.
