Animal Control & Town Code Enforcement

We are here to serve and provide a safe place for Pinedale citizens and their pets by  ensuring that animals have appropriate vaccinations through licensing and by minimizing public contact with nuisance animals. 

 

Animal Control enforces Town animal ordinances pertaining to our leash laws, cruelty to animals, impounding of dangerous/vicious animals, and investigation of animal bites.

 

We pick up and contain stray, sick or injured, and feral animals and transport them to the appropriate destination.  Emergency animal rescue, emergency night calls, and basic first aid are performed 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 into our facility. A lot of animals are brought in over holiday weekends and after thunderstorms. Please also be aware that we will hold them for five days. If a dog or cat has not been claimed within five days, it is then eligible for adoption.

 

The Town of Pinedale does not practice euthanasia; instead we find suitable homes for all animals as quickly as possible.

 

You may reach our animal control officer at 307-367-4136.
