Animal Control

***Please think about putting bird feeders away for the season,  we have already had reports of bears in the area and do not want to be feeding them.  You may also start to see baby bunnies in your yard because of breeding season,  please do not touch them they usually will move on with 2 weeks of being born.  Thank you for you're cooperation


********2019 Dog Licenses are now available please go to the town clerks office to renew or get your dog their ticket home if they get lost************

Please check out our Facebook Page called Dracut Animal Control Lost and Found Pets.

The primary function of the Animal Control Division is to enforce the Town of Dracut’s by-laws and the Massachusetts General Laws as they relate to animal issues. Some other duties of Animal Control include picking up stray dogs, licensing and vaccination enforcement, bite investigations, cruelty investigations, quarantines, barking complaints and barn inspections. Many of these duties require the officer be out of the office frequently. To reach the ACO, please call (978) 459-0691 and leave a detailed message. Your call will be returned as soon as possible. Our phone accepts voicemail 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you are calling to report a loose dog, please call the Dracut Police (978) 957-2123 and the ACO will be notified.

There is also an ACO on call for emergencies after regular hours and on weekends. This officer can be reached by calling the Dracut Police at (978) 957-2123 and speaking with the dispatcher. Please be advised that we are unable to respond to anonymous calls.
