Animal Control

City of Derby Animal Control strives to control and regulate the domestic animal population, and enforce the city’s animal control ordinances. Animal Control works to ensure the peace and quiet of Derby’s neighborhoods, protects public and private property, and provides a safe and healthy environment for residents and pets in the city.

Animal Control picks up stray animals, writes citations for ordinance violations, investigates cruelty and neglect complaints, investigates animal bites, works with animal owners to resolve barking and disturbance complaints and makes educational presentations to civic groups, neighborhood associations, and school classes.
