We are dedicated to protecting people and animals. Violations of county code and/or state law can have big penalties - from a $246 infraction to imprisonment.
We have two ways to file a complaint - online or by phone. Emergencies such as aggressive and threatening animals currently loose, injured domestic animals, and animal cruelty/abuse in progress should be reported to 911.
Please call our non-emergency phone number: (253) 798-PETS (7387). If directed to leave a message, please include your name, address, phone number, the nature of your complaint and the animal owner’s address, if known. After making a complaint, you may be contacted to obtain a statement or additional information.
If you are directed to submit an affidavit please remember:
You must obtain an incident number prior to completing and returning an affidavit to Pierce County Animal Control.
Affidavits can be downloaded, printed and mailed to: Pierce County Auditor, Attn: Animal Services, 2401 S. 35th Street, Room 200, Tacoma, WA 98409.
