The purpose of Animal Control is to answer the needs of the citizens of Putnam County and its animal population. Our daily goals are to protect the health and safety of the public, enforce state and local laws concerning animal protection, and to promote responsible pet ownership. We accommodate the needs of both people and animals by controlling, housing, and caring for the stray, lost, healthy, and injured animals, and by isolating biting, diseased, and potentially dangerous animals. We achieve our goals by collaborating with federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, public health and human resource departments, emergency management personnel, veterinary clinics, and various non-profit organizations. Through educating, enforcing, and encouraging proper animal care, humane treatment, and an overall respect of living things, our goals are accomplished.
