Did you know the St. Louis Park Police Department’s CSOs (Community Service Officers) double as Animal Control? If you have lost an animal, contact the Police Department’s dispatch line at (952) 924-2618 and area animal shelters.
State law requires all impound facilities to hold stray animals for a minimum period of five days to give an owner the opportunity to locate their pet. Be sure to contact all animal impound facilities and shelters in the area where your pet was lost.
City ordinance requires dogs older than 16 weeks to have a dog license and valid rabies vaccination. Owners can obtain a dog license
at City Hall when providing proof of vaccination and a license fee payment. An off-leash permit must also be obtained from the city before using off-leash dog areas
