Animal Control

The largest part of the Animal Service Officer's job is enforcement. The City of Cibolo has a number of ordinances pertaining to animals. Ordinances address dogs and cats running at large, excessive number of animals, unreasonably noisy animals, livestock/ fowl, and dangerous animals. Animal Services enforces city ordinances as well as County, State, and Federal animal-related regulations. See municipal code Chapter 10 for further information.

Our Animal Services Officers are the Local Rabies Control authority and can mandate quarantine of any animal involved in a bite.
