If you or your animal are bitten or attacked by any animal (domestic or wildlife) Animal control needs to be notified so that certain protocols can be put into action, including possible quarantine of the animal. If the bite is from a wild animal, rabies testing is needed whenever possible. DO NOT TRY TO CAPTURE A WILD ANIMAL.
Immediately dial 911
or call the Resident Troopers Office at (860) 684-3777
. They will contact the Animal Control Officer. If you or your animal are seriously injured Seek Immediate Medical Care.
For routine questions please call Animal Control at (860) 684-2382
License Your Dog
One important aspect at Stafford Animal Control is to stress the importance of dog licensing. If your dog is hurt or impounded due to roaming, it is vital that a license tag is on its collar for owner identification. With this information we can successfully return the dog to its owner, or, in case of injury, notify the owner of their dog's condition. This annual licensing is a minimal fee to help ensure your dog's safety
