The City of Boaz realized sometime back that there is a growing problem involving animals. Due to these problems, such as animal cruelty, stray animals and failure to restrain or leash animals, the City of Boaz employs a full-time Animal Control Officer.

The city's Animal Control Officer, responds to all complaints received. The calls are responded to, based first on priority and then by when received. These complaints range in all areas. From live to deceased, wild to domesticated, strays to unwanted, to abandoned and mistreated.

Animal Control has many tools to handle most of the situations that are presented. Such as traps for elusive and small animals to remove them to safer locations, as well as a tranquilizing system for larger and vicious animals.

The Animal Control Officer also patrols the city looking for violations of animal laws and ordinances.

The domesticated animals that are recovered are taken to the Sand Mountain Animal Clinic on West Henderson Rd. in Boaz. If you are missing an animal or believe that yours may have been recovered, please contact the Boaz Police Department's Animal Control Officer at 256-593-6812 or 256-593-6842.
