Animal Control consists of two full-time officers who are responsible for enforcing animal ordinances of the City of Steamboat Springs Municipal Code.
Animal Control Officers (ACOs) respond to calls for animal complaints such as: dogs at large
- animal bites
- animal cruelty
- vicious animals
- barking dogs
In addition, the ACOs handle calls relating to horses, cattle, and all domestic/pet animals.
Daily duties include investigations, daily, monthly and annual reports, issuing citations and warnings, and patrol. Their presence within the community provides public education as well as enforcement.
