Animal Control

The animal control position is a contracted person who responds to animal control issues.

All pets must be on a leash when not in an enclosed yard or a fenced in area. Nuisance laws are also in place to curb unreasonable barking and to help promote sanitary pet keeping.

Pets must be vaccinated for rabies and if your pet bites someone the bite must be reported to Animal Control at 515-573-2323.

Pet owners are required to register their cat or dog at the City Clerk's Office, 819 1st Ave. South, 515-576-4551.

To reach the Animal Control officer call the Webster County Telecommunication Center, 515-573-2323.
