Local Animal Control Agencies

 Please contact your local animal control agency for calls regarding barking dogs, disruptive cats or stray animals. If you see a vicious animal or an injured domestic animal on the side of the road please call your local animal control agency. If you see injured or orphaned wildlife or are unable to reach your local animal control agency for an injured domestic animal, please contact The SPCA at 831-373-2631 or 422-4721 or after hours at 831-646-5534.

The majority of animal neglect cases investigated by SPCA Humane Officers are unintentional and can be resolved through education. Intentional cases of cruelty to animals are investigated and prepared for prosecution by the district attorney to the fullest extent of the law.

If you are currently witnessing a cockfight in progress, a domestic animal in freeway traffic, or active cruelty, please call 911 or contact the California Highway Patrol at 831-796-2175.
