ANIMAL CALLS IN RANCHO MURIETA

CONTACT ANIMAL CONTROL SERVICES

Contact Sacramento County Animal Control Services at 916-875-4311 or 311 or report on-line at www.311.saccounty.net.

Effective immediately, the District is suspending the practice of the Security Department responding to certain animal calls, such as: loose or capture dogs, taking custody of any animal, relocating or dealing with snakes, bats, or any other type of domestic or non-domestic animals.

DOMESTIC ANIMALS

Security can assist if a dog is found by calling the owner with information we may have on file but we will not take custody of the dog or "babysit" it at either gate. The citizen holding onto the dog will be instructed to call Animal Control.

NON-DOMESTIC ANIMALS

Security will respond to an animal call if there is a threat to public safety such as an aggressive loose dog threatening or attacking people, animals in the roadway creating a hazard, or a bobcat sighting.

Response to aggressive or threatening animals will consist of our observing the animal and reporting it to Animal Control or the Department of Fish and Game.
