Who do we call for concerns with animals?
Answer: Lost cat? Noisy dog next door?
For most animal concerns, contact Davis County Animal Control at (801) 444-2200. The County provides this service to our community by contract.
Davis County Animal Services handles: pet licensing, adoption, microchipping, and spaying/neutering; lost, loose, or attacking animals; feral cats; excessive barking; and unlawfully keeping wild animals. They even help with racoons and skunks. Fees and other information are posted on their website at http://www.daviscountyutah.gov/animalcontrol/.
Questions regarding other wild animals (deer, snakes, waterfowl, etc.) should go to the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources at (801) 538-4700.
Households are limited to two dogs and four cats. Farm animals are kept by many residents; the number allowed depends upon the size and zoning of their property. Report concerns regarding an excessive number of animals to Syracuse Code Enforcement at (801) 825-1477.
Please remember: never leave your animal in the car unattended, and keep your dogs on leashes in parks and on trails.
The cost of providing animal services in Syracuse is split 50/50 with the county. Last year, the cost to the City for animal control was about $62,000.
