Animal Services


The county’s Animal Services department is responsible for enforcing leash laws, capturing loose or stray animals, and running a shelter in Martinez. Supervisor Gioia sponsored the county's potentially dangerous dog ordinance, which is regarded as a model for how governments can fairly deal with problem animals.
