Southbury Animal Control also handles emergency calls such as reports of animal cruelty, injured dog or cat, and situations involving possible rabid animal exposure to humans or domestic animals. After 4:30 p.m. an animal bite/attack is also considered an emergency.
We also handle orphan animals and orphan wildlife calls. The assistant animal control officer is a certified veterinary technician with 9 years in the field, so we are equipped to handle many different emergency situations pertaining to many varieties of animals. We have been fortunate to be included in rehabilitating many fawns, baby raccoons, squirrels, rabbits, and puppies and kittens.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
