The mission of Taylor County Animal Control is to promote responsible pet ownership, animal welfare, a safe community, and to reduce pet overpopulation.  Our division strives to eliminate animal cruelty by educating the public and enforcing the laws.

With the growth and development on the coast and throughout the county we are encountering an increase in calls for service.  Population growth also means an increase of animals to the area.  We have experienced more calls regarding lost or stolen pets, abandoned animals, cruelty/neglect calls and aggressive animal calls.

Taylor County Animal Control works under the direction of The Environmental Services Division and the Taylor County Board of County Commissioners. We are a non-profit agency that is supported by the tax dollars of county and city residents.  Our annual budget is approximately $160,500.00 from which we pay the salaries of two (2) Animal Control Officers (Including the Coordinator) and one (1) Secretary, their benefits, capital expenses, maintenance on equipment and vehicles, purchase all of our pet foods, pet supplies and equipment.  Animal Control is not part of, or related to, the Taylor County Humane Society or other animal care or enforcement agency.
