Contact Animal Control

How do I contact Animal Control?

The Idaho Humane Society’s Animal Care and Control Division is on duty from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. seven days a week. To reach our dispatcher, call 208-343-3166. Due to the high volume of calls we receive, you may have to leave a voicemail with a telephone number where you can be reached. The dispatcher will call you back as quickly as possible. If you are requesting that a humane officer be dispatched to a location, you must provide a street address.

For after-hours emergencies, call the Ada County Sheriff’s Dispatch Center at 208-377-6790, and a humane officer may be dispatched to respond.

You can also reach Animal Control by email at aco@idahohumanesociety.org.

When will an animal control officer respond to my call?

Calls must be handled on a priority basis. How quickly an officer can respond to a specific call depends not only upon the priority of that call, but also on how many calls of a higher priority are occurring at that particular time. Calls involving an injured animal or an animal in immediate danger of injury or harm to a person are the highest priority. Therefore, it might take a little longer to respond to calls regarding a barking dog. Your patience and support is appreciated.
