Animal Control

Keith Animal Control Officer

McMinnville Animal Control promotes responsible pet ownership and helps prevent the spread of animal-borne diseases.  They also enforce animal control ordinances as well as investigate animal cruelty and neglect.  Animal Control protects the public from nuisance animals running at large and provides temporary shelter for stray, unwanted, or homeless animals.  They offer pets for adoption for a fee of $97.00 (adoption fee to have them spayed or neutered).  If an animal has previously been spayed or neutered, the $50.00 spay or neuter fee will be waived. 

Is your pet lost?  We seek to reunite pet owners with their lost pets.  Please stop by immediately after you realize your pet is lost!  We can discuss with you what we will need for a happy reunion.  The only way to be certain if your pet is at our shelter is to come to see for yourself in person.

Remember that a collar and a tag are your pet's best way of being reunited with you quickly!  If your pet gets out of every collar tried, you might consider microchipping.

Codes and Ordinances related to animal control are as follows:
