How do I get a dog trap?
Animal Services does not provide dog traps to the public. You can report a stray dog in your area online or by calling 311 and an Animal Control Officer will be sent out.
The officer makes the decision to set up a trap if they were unable to catch the dog. If the officer places the trap to capture an animal and you are present when the trap is placed, you can be trained on how to re-set the trap if it gets locked without the animal inside.
If you decide to purchase a dog trap, you are responsible for the humane capture and care of the animal or you can report the stray.
