Canine Control

Lucas County Canine Care & Control is responsible for enforcing Chapter 955 of the Ohio Revised Code. We have six Canine Control Officers who provide services to the community. These officers investigate dog bites, respond to reports of dogs running loose or injured dogs, pick up found dogs and transport them to the shelter, seek medical care for sick or injured dogs, and much, much more.

Check back soon for information about local laws related to dogs.
