About Us

Group of animals

The staff of Elk Grove Animal Services provides exceptional service to our four legged community members and their owners. We are responsible to ensure all animals are treated humanely and with compassion. Our officers in the field respond to loose, sick, stray, injured, or abandoned animals within the city limits of Elk Grove. Our clerical staff provides stellar customer service in their daily interactions with citizens answering questions related to licensing, public nuisances, trapping of animals, wildlife concerns, and providing resource information.

All members of our staff are committed to reduce the number of unwanted animals, find all ways possible to reunite all lost or misplaced pets with their families, and ensure positive outcomes for all animals within our care through adoptions, rescue, or foster programs.
