Crete Animal Control

Animal Control Officers maintain public safety by enforcing animal licensing laws and humane care regulations while on patrol. Working as an Animal Control Officer can be both challenging and rewarding, and it requires handling all kinds of animals, from pets to wildlife.

While on duty, Animal Control Officers interact frequently with members of the public. They issue citations and warnings to people for mistreatment of animals in their care and may remove animals from a negligent owner’s custody. These officers are responsible for more than enforcing animal laws; they also assist law enforcement as the animal experts in Crete.

In the case of wildlife, officers help relocate these animals—many that have been displaced because of habitat loss or that have come into neighborhoods in search of food and shelter.
