Animal Care and Control


The mission of the City of Surprise Police Department Animal Care and Control Unit is to build a positive relationship between the police department and pet owners throughout the city.

By educating our community and working in partnership, we can:

  • Reduce unwanted and homeless pets by spaying and neutering
  • Reduce the loose pet population
  • Reduce the nuisance of animal noise to neighbors
