It is the responsibility of the Animal Control Division to investigate roaming dogs, animal bites, cruelty to animals, barking nuisance, unreasonable tethering or confining of a dog, town defecation ordinance, leash law, valid rabies vaccination, dog licensure and rabies-related wildlife complaints that present an imminent danger to the public. It is the goal of the Animal Control Division to educate the public on humane animal care and to place impounded animals into qualified homes. 

Adoptions | All animals impounded at the facility are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, tested for disease and microchipped prior to adoption. The Stratford Animal Control Facility maintains a 100% adoptable animal rate.

Stray Cats & Kittens | There are currently no laws pertaining to roaming or stray cats in Stratford. Animal Control will only get involved with cats under the following circumstances: cat bites, verify valid rabies vaccinations for owned domestic cats, aid sick or injured cats, investigate cruelty violations, and investigate complaints of cats exhibiting signs of rabies.
