The Animal Control section is responsible for enforcing local ordinances, state statutes and regulations related to: unlicensed dogs; leash law violations; unvaccinated animals; animal bite quarantine; all animal complaints from citizens as well as formal complaints received through the Office of the Chief of Police.

To report a stray or lost animal, please call Animal Control at (508) 799-1211. All stray animals that can not be identified are taken to the Worcester Animal Rescue League (WARL). The WARL is a no-kill intake animal shelter located at 139 Holden Street, Worcester, MA 01606. Injured animals are taken to a local veterinarian. Animal Control logs all animals that are picked up and the WARL keeps records of animals they receive.
