Animal Control

Animal Control is part of the Northglenn Police Department. Animal control duties are handled by our Community Service Officers. They handle calls regarding animal concerns from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. seven days a week. For non-emergency complaints or information requests, please call 303-450-8886.

For emergencies such as an animal running loose, cat in a trap, abuse, etc., please call 303-288-1535 or dial 911. Animal Control is responsible for picking up loose domestic animals, setting and servicing cat traps, investigating neglect/abuse of animals, barking dogs and dog bites.

Animal Control does not handle wildlife, but they may be able to provide limited advice. Wildlife is best handled by professional pest control companies or the Division of Wildlife.

Animal Licenses

The city does not license or register pets. However, all dogs and cats must be inoculated against rabies by a licensed veterinarian as frequently as recommended by the Compendium of Animal Rabies Control as made known by the National Association of State Public Health Veterinarians. Dogs and cats must be inoculated within 30 days of being brought into the city. Guard dogs that are used to guard or protect personal or real property must obtain a permit from the City Clerk's Office.
