Piedmont Animal Services

Animal Control & Dog Licensing

The Piedmont Animal Control Officers are responsible for enforcement of all state laws and city ordinances relating to animals, including pick up and transportation of sick or injured animals, investigation of barking dog complaints, issuing citations or warnings for leash and licensing violations, capturing feral cats, and investigating cases of animal cruelty.

An animal control officer is on-duty to issue dog licenses Wednesdays between 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. A Dog License & Off Leash Permit Application is available on the City’s website or available at the Police Department. A dog license may be obtained by mail. Mail the application with proof of vaccination from your veterinarian to the Police Department.

Dog owners must clean up after their dogs in the parks as well as on the streets and sidewalks. Litter disposal bags are available, free of charge, in each city park.

All dogs in Piedmont must be leashed when in public, unless the pet has a permit tag to use designated off-leash recreation areas. You may apply for a special Off-Leash Permit for your pet, which can be used at Blair Park, Dracena Park, Linda Park Off-Leash Area, and Piedmont Park.

For further information, or for animal services assistance, contact the Animal Control Officers at (510) 420-3006. For urgent animal assistance call (510) 420-3000.
