Animal Control

If you need to claim a dog, please call Dispatch at 435-753-7555.

It is the mission of Logan City Police Department Animal Control (LCPDAC) to provide safe, effective, and humane care to animals within Logan City Limits.

Currently, when a stray dog is taken into custody by LCPDAC, it is transported to the Cache County Sheriff Animal Services where the dog is held in temporary shelter. This is a great partnership allowing for the dogs to be in a comfortable environment, being cared for by shelter staff. 

LCPDAC works very hard to reunite lost animals with their respective owners. The staff utilizes information systems and an extensive Facebook platform to find owners of lost animals. In the event an owner cannot be located after 5 business days, the dogs are made available for adoption or rescue. Significant measures are taken to ensure dogs are being fostered or adopted by responsible pet owners or reputable rescue shelters.

LCPDAC participates in a limited Trap, Neuter, Release (TNR) program for stray and feral cats.

LCPDAC may still respond to incidents involving stray or feral cats as appropriate, mainly to scan the animal for a microchip which may provide owner information. If a microchip is located, LCPDAC will assist the complainant in finding the owner of the cat. LCPDAC will also direct a complainant to contact various animal rescue organizations who may have ability to take responsibility for the cat(s) or provide additional assistance.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Sgt. Cook at 435-716-9459.

If you have found a stray dog or are missing a pet please call Dispatch at 435-753-7555 for Animal Control services.
