Animal Control & Code Enforcement
We are here to serve and provide a safe place for Pinedale citizens and pets. We assist with public safety by ensuring that animals have appropriate vaccinations through licensing and by minimizing public contact with nuisance animals.
We enforce Town animal ordinances pertaining to our leash laws, cruelty to animals, impounding of dangerous/vicious animals, and investigation of animal bites.
You might also see us driving around town in our Dog Truck. We pick-up and contain stray, sick/injured, feral, and/or unwanted and captured domestic animals and transport them to the appropriate destination. We perform emergency animal rescue service, emergency night call service, and animal first aid when required. We also set traps to capture evasive domestic and feral animals.
If your dog or cat has run away, please contact the Town of Pinedale Animal Control to see if your pet was brought in to our facility. A lot of animals are brought in over holiday weekends and after thunder storms. Please also be aware that we will hold them for you for five days. If the dog or cat has not been claimed within five days, then it is eligible for adoption. The Town of Pinedale does not practice euthanasia; instead we find suitable homes for all animals as soon as possible. You may reach our animal control officer at 307-367-4136.
