The Animal Control Division handles approximately 75 calls-for-service per month, which often vary from noise complaints (barking dogs), to animal "at-large" violations, to animal bite complaints, and several other enforcement related duties.  Complaints and calls concerning domesticated animals are received at the Richmond Police Department, which serves as dispatch for Animal Control.  Non-emergency calls received after-hours are referred to the next Animal Control Officer to return to duty. 

The Animal Control Division also provides temporary shelter, feeding, care, and medical treatment for impounded animals, and routinely facilitates adoptions to place abandoned, neglected, or unwanted animals in the care of willing and capable pet owners who are eager to provide the pet a safe and nurturing home environment.  ** Visit www.PETFINDER.com to view animals awaiting adoption.  

Calls concerning wild animals should be directed to the Department of Environmental Management at 401-222-3070.
