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


Viola and Sebastian

 

"I cannot BELIEVE Viola and Sebastian have been in my life for five years now- as I can't imagine life without them! They were given to me as part of a littler of neonatal kittens who had been sprayed by a chemical mixture and were not eating well. Thought it took some extra time and coaxing, them and their siblings soon started to heal, eat, and thrive. They were the last two to reach the weight required for spaying and neutering, and by the time it came to give them up- I simply couldn't do it! They have given me more than I can possibly give them. I am so grateful they came to the SPCA of Tompkins County as most shelters would have had them put down. I love you babies!"
