Animal control officers investigate animal abuse and provide services, including leash-law enforcement, regulating barking dogs, regulating vicious/dangerous dogs, rabies control, bite quarantines and courtesy dead-animal removal.
Animal control falls within the patrol division of the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office. This partnership began in January 1998 as a result of a county reorganization.
Jefferson County Animal Control has jurisdiction on animal control issues in unincorporated Jefferson County. If you live in a city, please contact your city's animal control agency.
Take a look at the Jefferson County Animal Control Regulations to see the policy and ordinances.
Copies of reports are available. The fee is $5 for up to five pages. Additional pages cost 50 cents a piece.
The Jefferson County Animal Control and licensing regulation requires annual licensing of all dogs four months of age and older.
Female dogs in heat/season must be confined during such time in a house, building or secure enclosure so the dog does not create a neighborhood nuisance.
Jefferson County Animal Control officers are not authorized to handle nuisance wildlife; however, there are many resources available to manage the problem.
