All Animal Control requests can be called in, 24 hours a day, to the Richmond Police Department at 737-8518. The on-duty police officer will be dispatched to assist you. Generally, municipal animal control officers are responsible for the control of stray or loose domestic animals such as dogs, cats, cows and horses. We also provide other services such as investigating animal cruelty or neglect complaints, and inspections of boarding kennels and breeding kennels in Richmond. Citizens can feel free to call the police department anytime with an animal question or complaint.
