The mission of Butte County Animal Control (BCAC) is to protect, promote and enhance the health, safety and quality of life for the County's animals and citizens. We do this through education, community collaboration and the enforcement of animal related laws and ordinances.
BCAC is closed weekends and holidays, however you can leave a message after-hours in the case of an emergency. Officers are on call to respond to emergency calls only from 8:00am to 4:00 pm on these days.
All dogs four (4) months of age or older must be licensed in Butte County. Licensing is required by County Code and State Law. Licensing indicates your dog is vaccinated for rabies and it also helps Animal Control get the dog back to you should it get lost.
Learn the importance of rabies vaccination, locate veterinarians and access county code relating to kennels and exotic animals.

In the event of a disaster or emergency, Butte County Animal Control, Butte County Public Health Department and the North Valley Animal Disaster Group have established a animal disaster plan. Evacuation services and animal sheltering may be available for families who are unable to return to their homes or are temporarily unable to provide for their animals in the midst of a disaster.
