How To Contact Greenville Animal Control

Every year, animal bites, including both dogs and cats, account for millions of injuries and hospital visits. Over 800,000 of those injuries are serious enough to require medical attention and treatment. Animal bites, however, are not the only challenge people with animal-induced injuries experience. Scratches and joint injuries, among others, can also occur due to animals that are unsupervised, untrained, and out of control.

When to Call Greenville Animal Control

Animal control officers in Greenville work during normal business hours.They’ll come to collect a stray dog or cat - or another animal - during those times. Contact them when:

  • You see a stray dog or cat roaming the neighborhood
  • There’s a nuisance pet causing a commotion
  • You’ve lost a pet in Greenville and are looking for them

If there is a genuine emergency - say a dog mauled your child - call 911 first. Children, in particular, need immediate medical attention. Even if you believe your child wasn’t harmed, if they’re involved with any animal altercation, get them to a doctor right away. They may need a test or vaccination for rabies, stitches, and ongoing treatments.
