Complaints

If you have a concern about an injured dog or cat, a nuisance or aggressive dog, or a neglected or abandoned animal, you may contact our office during regular business hours.

In an emergency, always call 911. Otherwise, you may call Animal Services at 503-846-7041. 

When one of our Animal Control Officers or a law enforcement officer witnesses a violation of one of the laws below, we may issue a citation against the owner of the animal or against the person who was cruel or neglectful to an animal. Our officers can issue citations, which can result in fines of up to $500. We also sometimes work with law enforcement agencies, which can lead to imprisonment in cases of abuse or extreme neglect.
