Call 1-833-926-4625 (1-833-9ANIMAL) to report incidents of animals in distress or locked in vehicles and officers will be dispatched. Provide as many details as possible, including the type of cruelty witnessed, the date of the incident, where it took place and who was involved. All information remains confidential.

For information or to report a missing or stray cat or dog, please call your municipal animal control officer.
Municipal law enforcement is not responsible for the removal of nuisance wildlife (ie skunks, racoons); this is the responsibility of the home owner.
For concerns about sick or injured wildlife in the wild
Information on what to do if you find a sick, injured or abandoned wild animal can be found on the Rescue a sick, injured or abandoned wild animal webpage.
