The Animal Control Program maintains a twenty-four hour answering service and emergency pick-up for confined stray animals, injured animals and stray biters. Will County Animal Control facility consists of administrative offices only. We do not have the capacity to house any animals for adoption. We cannot accept owner turn-ins, or drop offs.
If you can no longer keep or house your pet please contact your local animal shelters. If you have adopted your pet from a shelter or other adoption agency, you should review your adoption contract. Many agencies have a policy that states to return the pet to that particular agency.
