Animal Control Division
The purpose of the Yreka Animal Control Division is to educate the public regarding responsible pet ownership and enforcing City animal ordinances. We perform a variety of services that help animals as well as the public: rescuing injured or sick animals, controlling stray and potentially dangerous animals roaming at large, removing stray dead animals from public property and housing dogs in the animal shelter where their owners can reclaim them.
Animal Control officers are in action every day, handling many routine as well as emergency situations with pets and wild animals. One of the most important things that we do is to investigate animal bites. Animals that bite are quarantined and placed under observation to make sure the threat of rabies does not exist. Other situations which we investigate are animal cruelty and abuse, complaints of animal noise annoyance, unsanitary conditions, and abandoned animals.
