City of Ulysses Animal Control

The City of Ulysses Animal Control Officer is dedicated to perform duties for the City in the enforcement of ordinances and statutes related to the control of animals and the operation of the animal shelter.
What Citizens Can Do:
  • Spay and neuter your pets. Their behavior improves and fewer unwanted animals are born.
  • Confine your pets properly. The animals will be safe and will not be problem for your neighbors.
  • Vaccinate your pets and see that they receive proper medical care.
  • License your dogs and see that the tags are on them at all times.
  • Attach identification tags to your pets' collars with current telephone numbers. A lost pet can be quickly returned with this simple "trick".
  • Don't let your dog bark all the time--he's not being a good watch dog, he's simply bored and is now driving your neighbors nuts. Make him part of the family!
  • Join or start a Neighborhood Watch and make animal related problems a priority.

When reporting an Animal Control Problem:
  •  Provide accurate information, such as addresses and specific locations.
  • Your identity will be kept confidential; we will ask for your phone number in case we need more information from you and to follow-up with any progress.
  • Be willing to confine a stray dog for pick up. If the dog remains loose, he may be gone when the Animal Control Officer arrives. And of course the dog will return alter. The problem has not been solved.
