Animal Control

Mission
To prevent cruelty, abuse and neglect of animals in Frederick County by enforcing all state, county and city ordinances to the fullest extent possible. We will shelter homeless animals and attempt to place them in safe and loving home environments. We will educate the public on all animal issues, to foster a more aware and caring community.
