Animal Care and Control is overseen by a certified Animal Control Officer for the City of Leon Valley. The goal of the Animal Control Division is to keep the Leon Valley community and its pets/animals safe against rabies and other diseases communicated by animals to humans. Leon Valley Animal Control addresses dangers and nuisances that are caused when animals are homeless, unrestrained, neglected, or abused.
Please note that wildlife should be left alone. If you are concerned with critters in your area be sure all garbage containers are securely sealed, do not leave your pet’s food outdoors for an extended period of time, remove bird and/or squirrel feeds, and seal any holes that could allow access to your garbage, house, attic, or porch.
Animal Control will only relocate healthy wildlife in accordance with State law to an area that can sustain wildlife with natural sources of water, food, and shelter.
If you have any questions or issues that need to be reported in regards to animal nuisance you can submit a ticket online or call (210) 684-OnIt.
