About Animal Control

Person in Animal Control VehicleThe Animal Control Department has regular business hours Monday through Friday between 8 am and 4 pm, and weekends from 8 am to 3 pm. Occasionally we patrol during the wee hours of the morning or into the evening hours.

Animal Control is located at the Dennis Police Station and we are proud to work closely with the Dennis Police Department. Animal Control calls are answered at the Police dispatch center and relayed to Animal Control by phone, or we can be dispatched directly by radio if we are on patrol.


Animal Control is available to respond to emergencies 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The Dennis Police Department receives the call and will contact Animal Control for a response when we are needed.

Emergencies are usually related to injured animals or dog attack situations, with the occasional loose livestock needing to be rounded up and returned home. Non-emergency complaints are handled during regular business hours.
