Carrboro Animal Control
What Does Animal Control Do?
Officers respond to complaints concerning animal bites, public nuisances, neglect, cruelty, stray, lost, and injured animals. Animals picked up are impounded at the Orange County Animal Shelter. Animal Control is responsible for enforcing laws on a state and local level. Officers also provide information and education to citizens.

Familiarize yourself with the dog park rules and etiquette.

For your pet's health, please remember to exercise him daily with walks and visits to our newly fenced-in leash free area.

Educate yourself and entertain your dog! Sign up for lessons on Obedience, Agility, Tracking, and more...!
