Animal Control

Naperville Animal Control is a unit within the Naperville Police Department that:

  • Enforces local and state animal control and welfare laws
  • Operates a shelter for stray and non-native/exotic animals
  • Rescues animals that are stray, injured or in danger
  • Promotes responsible pet ownership and animal care through education and enforcement

Last year, Naperville Animal Control received nearly 4,800 calls for service and fielded thousands of wildlife inquiries, primarily about birds, skunks and coyotes. Of the 290 cats and dogs impounded by this unit in 2017, 146 (or 50%) were returned to their owners while the other 50% were transferred to area shelters.
