Animal Control

The Animal Control Officers for Cole County Sheriff’s Office will do whatever they can to assist our citizens with animal related problems. They have helped with cattle, horses, dogs, cats or what ever animal was involved at the time.


If you need a trap for feral cats, you can borrow one from the Animal Shelter. The cost is a $40.00 refundable deposit. The trap can only be kept for a week.  

Animal Abuse

If you think an animal is being abused outside city limits, please contact Cole County Animal Control at 573-634-9160. We rely on you to tell us about suspected abuse or neglect.

No matter what the season please remember to make sure your pets have adequate food, water and shelter.
