After hours Emergency & Non-Emergency Reports

In the interest of providing the best Animal Control Services possible, at a reasonable cost, we ask that personnel be called out only in emergency situations during off duty hours. Duty hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.



  1. An animal bite in which the animal is not confined and posing a potential threat.
  2. An injured domestic stray animal.
  3. Police cases, involving animals (arrests, house fires. accidents, etc.).



  1. Stray animals running loose.
  2. Dogs in yards not on a leash or confined
  3. Wild Animals-we do not pick-up wild animals.   We refer people to Daniel Brault at (815) 471-6155 or Rob Wolf (708) 203-7967  (wild life nuisance personnel).
    • Please Note that Daniel Brault and Rob Wolf charge for their services.

If an emergency situation develops during non-duty hours, please contact the Grundy County Sheriff’s dispatch center at 942-0336 and explain the situation. They will be able to contact the animal control officer on-call and arrange for the situation to be resolved.

Thank you for your cooperation.
