Placer County provides animal shelters for stray and unwanted animals with the hope of placing animals in new loving homes through pet adoption and foster care. We also help with lost or found animals and licensing for all dogs over 4 months of age.
Our Animal Control Officers respond to reports of barking dogs; loose, injured or dead animals on public and county roads; investigations of animal abuse, animal bites and rabies exposure. We also educate people on humane treatment of animals and enforce laws and ordinances regulating animal care and welfare, including inspection of commercial kennels in the County.
