Animal Control

Tompkins County Animal Control (TCAC) is a division of the SPCA of Tompkins County. Several local municipalities have contracted (hired) TCAC to provide animal control services. In our service areas, TCAC officers will respond to calls regarding stray dogs, injured stray cats  and will work with members of the public to resolve "nuisance" complaints (barking, etc.). Although TCAC has not been contracted to provide animal control services in every municipality in the county, TCAC will respond to reports of abuse, cruelty or neglect of any animal anywhere in Tompkins County. Here is a brief outline of what TCAC does and does not do:

What TCAC does

  • Provide emergency service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year
  • Dog licensure enforcement
  • Pick up stray dogs and provide impoundment services
  • Pick up distressed or injured stray animals
  • Respond to calls concerning:
    • Nuisance dogs
    • Dogs at large
    • Dangerous dogs
  • Respond to calls concerning cruelty, abuse, or negligence visited upon any animal
  • Pick up injured or distressed cats
  • Trap domestic animals under certain circumstances

What TCAC does not do

  • Pick up stray cats (unless injured or distressed)
  • Pick up animals the guardian plans to surrender
  • Trap or transport wildlife for relocation

Stories

Jasper

 

"I just wanted to share a photo of my little angel, Jasper (I call him Jazzy bear). I adopted him 4 years ago from the Tompkins County SPCA.

He started out being a little nervous, but has really learned to trust again. His tail wags constantly and he’s very snuggly.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to find him. He is such a wonderful boy! "
