Animal Control Complaints

    In order to help our Animal Control officers assist you with a complaint, please provide the following information when submitting a complaint by phone at 573-449-1888 or by e-mail:

    • Precise location of the alleged violation
    • Description of the animal (color, size, etc.)

    Calls stating,  “there are a lot of dogs running loose on Wild Road,” and then hang up, are not of great value to us. In most cases we will accept and investigate anonymous complaints, however it is beneficial to have the names of the parties involved for additional information and follow up purposes.
