Our animal control officers provide field services for the City of La Habra, 7 days a week, during day time hours. However, 24 hour service is available for emergencies, such as stray injured animals or aggressive animals running at large that have caused or attempted to cause injury. In addition to responding to calls for service regarding strays, animal bites, dog licensing issues, barking complaints, and leash law violations, our animal control officers play a lead role in the enforcement of anti-cruelty regulations, investigating reports of abuse, neglect, or abandonment. They also facilitate getting veterinary care for injured animals and every effort is made to promptly reunite lost pets with their owners. In fact, it is our policy to check all domesticated animals for a license and/or an identifying implanted chip, prior to them being taken to the shelter.
Animal sheltering services for La Habra are provided through a contract with Inland Valley Humane Society.
