We work hard every day to ensure the welfare of our community as well as the care and safety of pets. We handle thousands of pet adoptions each year in addition to many other services for our community.
Animal welfare and investigations are a top priority. We investigate violations and complaints and enforce state law and local ordinance.
Timely vaccinations help keep your pet – and our community – safe and healthy. Vaccinations prevent the spread of diseases between animals and from animals to people.
spay & neuter
Spaying and neutering help prevent pet overpopulation in our community. That’s why all the animals adopted from Winnebago County Animal Services are spayed or neutered before going home.
local ordinances & state law
Winnebago County Animal Services is tasked with managing state statutes and local ordinances.
