    What we do

    Our Animal Care and Control Officers enforce the dogs laws in Montgomery County and keep the public safe from animal-related health or safety dangers. They also educate the public and teach pet owners to be more responsible citizens.

    Animal Care and Control Officers respond to requests for service from the public, police departments, etc. Routine responses include sick or injured dogs, stray dogs, loose owned pets, and bite animals. Animal Care and Control Officers will respond to your needs in uniform and a county vehicle.

    Winter Safety Tips


    When temperatures (and snow) begin to fall, you'll find your pet needs a little extra care from you.

    *A bowl of frozen water can't help a thirsty pet.  Check outdoor water bowls often when it's below freezing.

    *Outdoor dogs need more calories in the winter to produce body heat, so increase the amount you feed your pet.

    *Chemicals used to melt snow on sidewalks can irritate your pet's paws, so you may want to wipe them with a wet cloth after an outing.

    *Antifreeze tastes good to pets, but it's a deadly poison.

    *A cat may crawl up under your car seeking warmth from your engine.
