The most common reasons for Animal Control intervention are, but certainly not limited to, dogs at large, dog bites, animal abuse or neglect, and persistent barking. The rule of thumb: If you are not sure you need animal control, you probably do. Please call and we will be happy to assist you in any way we can.

Some services that our officers can provide are:

- Enforcing the Teller County Animal Control Ordinance

- Picking up stray dogs

- Assisting with lost, found and injured stray animals
