Animal Control Important Information:

There is a leash law in effect in Point Venture.

All dogs are required to be registered if they reside in Point Venture.

**Contact Animal Control for more information on rabies outbreak**
***Alert! Make sure all dogs are vaccinated***

Point Venture Animal Control is advising residents to vaccinate their dogs against rabies and canine distemper after several grey foxes and skunks were destroyed after displaying odd behavior (out during daytime, no fear of humans, disorientation, aggression , excessive salvation, spinning in circles and jaw tremors). Two of the foxes were sent for rabies testing and the results were negative.  One of the skunks was sent in for distemper testing and the results came back POSITIVE. 

Any residents seeing a wild animal displaying any of these symptoms should keep themselves and their pets away from the animal and call Point Venture Animal Control immediately, 512 267-5511 or 512 587-7235. More information on foxes

Animal Control Code of Ethics

As a Humane Law Enforcement Officer, my fundamental duty is to serve mankind; to safeguard lives of animals and humans alike, and to respect the constitutional right of all men to liberty, and equality and justice. As my love of animals and their care if first and foremost.
 
I will keep my private life unsullied as an example to all; maintain courageous and calm in the face of danger, scorn or ridicule; develop self-restraint; and be constantly mindful of the welfare of others.  Honest in thought and deed in both my personal and official life, I will be exemplary in obeying the laws of the land and the regulations of my department.  Whatever I see or hear of a confidential nature or is confided to me in my official capacity will be kept over secret unless revelation is necessary in the performance of my duty.
 
I will never act officiously or permit personal feelings, prejudices, animosities or friendships to influence my decisions.  With no compromise for crime with relentless prosecution of offenders, I will enforce the laws courteously and appropriately without fear or favor, malice or ill will, never employing unnecessary force or violence and never accepting gratuities.

I recognize the badge of my office as a symbol of public faith, and I accept it as a public trust to be held so long as I am true to the ethics of the service of my community.  I will constantly strive to achieve these objectives and ideals dedicating myself before God to my chosen profession as a Professional Animal Control Officer.
 
Proverbs 12:10 “A righteous man always cares for his animals”
