Animal Control

Our City of La Puente Animal Control Officer’s (ACO’s) are dedicated to serving the community at a level far above that received via County contract services.  We are dedicated to serving both the residents and their animals, focusing on the proper care and welfare of our four legged friends.  Our “enforce via assistance” approach helps us better connect with City of La Puente residents while solving common animal control related issues.  We firmly believe that community collaboration is the best way to get things done.

We proudly serve the residents of the incorporated City of La Puente, if you reside within the un-incorporated (LA County) area of La Puente, please contact LA County Animal Control at (626) 962-3577.

The City of La Puente is proud to be working with VIDA (Volunteers in Defense of Animals) an nonprofit organization dedicated to the humane treatment of our animals in need of care and a new home. With over 400 adoption and advocacy groups connected to VIDA, our stray dogs and cats have the best chance of finding a new home!

If you would like to volunteer at VIDA, please visit VIDA’s website: www.vida4animals.org

Check here regularly to see the various animals that have found their way into our hands. We encourage everyone to seek the amazing friendship that a pet can provide. The images and details of those four-legged friends that are in our care will be posted as soon as they come to us and we will let you know what we can about each of them.

It’s very stressful to discover that your dog or cat is missing, but knowing what to do next can make all the difference.  First, thoroughly check your property to see if your pet is simply hiding, then make a quick walk or drive around your block to see if he/she is near by.

If there’s no sign of your pet, and you live within the incorporated (actual city, not county) area of La Puente, give City of La Puente’s Animal Control a call at (626) 855-1555; our officers will obtain pertinent information from you and assist in locating your lost pet.  It’s important to know that our primary shelter, where we place recovered strays, is VIDA (Volunteers in Defense of Animals.) VIDA is open during business hours to the residents of La Puente who are looking for their lost dog or cat. Go to vida4animals.org for more information on this wonderful, humane rescue shelter organization.  If you live in the county area of La Puente, L.A. County Animal Control is you provider, however, the city is a great contact if your pet has strayed into the city limits.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: ALL DOGS AND CATS FOUND WITHIN THE INCORPORATED CITY LIMITS OF LA PUENTE MUST BE SURRENDERED TO A CITY OF LA PUENTE ANIMAL CONTROL OFFFICER.

City of La Puente’s Animal Control is here for you 24/7!  (626) 855-1555
