Animal Protection Services

Our Animal Control Officers respond numerous calls each month and calls are answered on a priority basis. Sheriff Deputies assists, calls about cruelty, neglect, biting and potentially dangerous animals are responded to first.

They enforce leash law and licensing compliance, investigate complaints of cruelty and neglect, respond to bite complaints and rabies concerns and address noise and waste complaints. Where possible, provide outreach and education throughout Pima County, providing assistance to families who want to provide better care for their pets.
