After hours and weekends: 259-8115 (Sheriff's Dispatch) The Animal Control Division of the Moab City Police Department has a big task. Two Animal Control Officers, who are civil service employees, patrol and respond to animal problems throughout Grand County, and the growing population south of Moab city limits. Animal Control Officers respond to complaints about unsecured pets, animals in trouble, skunks, dead animals on roadways, and other animal control issues. These officers are trained in the care and security of animals and hold a deep concern for the animals they try to assist. The City has two animal control vehicles equipped with cages for the animals while they are transported to the shelter. Leash Laws and Pet Tags All domestic pets are required by City and County Ordinance to be under the owner's control either by leash, cord, chain or other means of physical control whenever they leave your property. Additionally, they must have a current rabies tag and current City or County license. Both dogs and cats are subject to these regulations. Rabies tags are given at the time of vaccination; City licenses may be purchased at the Dog & Cat Clinic, Moab Animal Services building or City Hall Treasurer's Department. Costs are as follows: Free for a spayed or neutered animal $25.00 for an un-neutered male $25.00 for an unspayed female When an animal is picked up for violation of the leash law, it will be taken to the Moab City Animal Shelter on 956 Sandflats Road for shelter and care. The animal is held at the shelter for a minimum of seven days. You will be charged $40.00 to retrieve your animal on impound and $10.00 a day boarding fee thereafter. There will also be a $50.00 spay/neuter deposit on all impounded animals not fixed. For complete text of Municipal Code related, go to Animal Control (Chapter 6.04 Animal Control.) Moab's animal control officers are responsible for another interesting - and potentially smelly - problem in the community. Skunks are a surprisingly common occurrence in Moab. The Moab City Police Department Animal Control Division will help you find solutions for your skunk visitors! By calling the Police Department, you can arrange for live traps and the subsequent removal of the problem critters!
