Animal Control

Animal Control of Victoria County

Pets play a vital role in our society. They give us companionship, affection, a sense of responsibility, and protection. Additionally, pets help improve our health by lowering blood pressure, reducing stress, and promoting exercise. As responsible pet owners, we can assure that dogs, cats, and other pets remain enjoyable members of our lives and the lives of those around us. 


About Us

Victoria County Public Health Department Animal Control Division promotes the prevention of zoonotic disease, public protection from roaming nuisance animals, and responsible pet ownership. We promote the prevention of zoonotic disease (disease that can be transmitted from animal to humans) by enforcing state laws and local ordinances that require vaccinating domestic animals from rabies. We promote public protection from roaming nuisance animals by enforcing city and county ordinances. We respond to most animal complaints in the City and County of Victoria. We promote responsible pet ownership by educating new adopters and the general public in how to care for their pet.

We are always here to answer questions the public may have about the city and county ordinances, state laws regarding rabies, general pet ownership/care, and many other animal issues. Of course if you have any questions about whom we are and what we do, please call and ask since there are many misconceptions about Animal Control.
