The Department's Animal Control Team is committed to protecting domestic animals from abuse and neglect and protecting citizens from dangerous animals. They do so by:
Investigating concerns related to barking dogs, animal bites, ongoing issues with animals and animal abuse
Impounding and quarantining animals to address safety and health concerns
Issuing citations for violations of city ordinance [PDF] or state law
City Ordinance requires that you register your pet if he or she is over four months old.
Animal Nuisance Report
If you would like to make a complaint regarding an ongoing situation with a nuisance animal, fill out the form on the Animal Nuisance page and submit it to the Cedar Park Police Department or Municipal Court located at 911 Quest Parkway or to any Cedar Park Animal Control Officer or Police Officer.
Animal adoptions are handled by the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter.
As a Department, we love seeing animals in healthy and happy homes where they do well and are cherished. If you are interested in providing that kind of home to an animal, we invite you to learn more about the adoption process.
Rabies is a terrible disease that is dangerous to animals and people. The sooner we can confirm a rabies case, the better. There are specific signs and symptoms that you can look for to gauge whether an animal may be rabid:
- Dehydrated or emaciated (skinny) appearance
- Walking in circles or clumsily walking with no apparent physical injury
- Failure to drink anything
- Nocturnal wildlife seen out during the day (extremely rare)
If you believe an animal is rabid, please call Animal Control immediately at 512-260-4622
