Welcome to Animal Care and Control

Animal Control Regulations

Our mission at Animal Care and Control has three core principals of Education - providing education to the public on humane treatment of animals, animal welfare, population control, adoption and responsible pet ownership, Enforcement - enforcement of State and Local Animal Control regulations and ordinances, Control - dedication to rabies virus awareness, control and testing to eradicate exposure to the rabies virus in Montgomery County.  We work strongly to continually build on our strong community partnerships, awareness, and relationships in Montgomery County.

Accomplishing this requires providing:

  • Quick and courteous responses to service requests
  • Promoting animal placements by increasing animal adoptions
  • Establishing working relationships with animal rescue organizations
  • Providing education to the members of the community on rabies eradication, animal care and disease prevention, and animal population control

Each staff member shares the responsibility, and accountability, for achieving these objectives. Employees are responsible for understanding the relationship of their duties on the job and the dedication of the division in respect to the objectives listed above. The success of the division is directly related to the commitment that each member is will to extend to their community.
