Animal Control Services

Animal Control is responsible for upholding and enforcing regulations and ordinances regarding the treatment and control of animals within the City and Borough of Sitka. Animal Control means not only protecting people from the nuisance of roaming, uncontrolled animals, but also protecting pets and wild animals in their habitats.

Animal Control Services include, but are not limited to:

  • Animal rescue
  • Compliant investigation
  • Animal cruelty investigation
  • Animal Ambulance
  • Animal quarantine
  • Limited wildlife management

Regulations addressing dogs on ball fields, soccer fields, and all municipal play grounds can be found here Chapter 23.30 Public use of Parks and Recreation Facilities

Animal Control should be contacted if you come across an animal that appears to be lost or wild. The Animal Control Officer will help attempt to find its rightful owner. If there is a stray, abandoned, or wild cat that frequents your property, please read about our Live Traps that can be borrowed. And please don't hesitate to report the mistreatment of any animal.

Remember: Animal control solutions begin with people.
