Question: Does the city pick up dead animals?



The City is responsible for the removal of dead animals from public property only (roads, sidewalks, parks, etc.). We are not permitted to go onto private property for removal. We will, however, pick up the animal (when notified) if it is placed in a trash bag or box and brought out to the curb.

If you are concerned about a pet that has gone missing that we may have picked up, please contact us. Public Services maintains records of all cats and dogs we pick up, and we store remains for a period of time for owners who wish to retrieve them.

If you have a lost pet, please contact the City’s Animal Control for more assistance.
