Animal Control

The Town of Ponce Inlet and the Ponce Inlet Police Department are dedicated to providing the best possible service to the citizens of Ponce Inlet. We have one fully certified Animal Control Officer Sergeant Doug Rudd.  

Types of Calls We Handle

All Officers respond to calls of animals causing a disturbance, loose animals, animal cruelty cases, injured animals, and a host of other situations involving domesticated and certain wild animals. Ponce Inlet's Animal Control Officers are sworn officers authorized to investigate and enforce the state laws and Ponce Inlet ordinances pertaining to animals.


Our Animal Control Personnel are dedicated to providing humane treatment for all animals in their care and each Officer receives specialized training by the Florida Animal Control Association in animal safety, handling, apprehension techniques, and capture equipment.
