The Sheriff’s Office Animal Control Deputies administer domestic animal control with many duties. These services include picking up stray domestic animals and loose livestock. Attempts are made to reunite lost animals back to their owners. These deputies must enforce local and state law pertaining to animals. They often investigate animal cruelty cases and livestock depredations by domestic animals. Animal bite reports are handled by animal control as well.  

Animal Control deals with Domestic Pets & Livestock ONLY.  For problems with wild animals, contact NC Wildlife Resources Commission at 888-248-6834 to get in touch with a local Wildlife Officer in Rockingham County. 

The Rockingham County Animal Control ordinance is comprehensive and available for inspection by visitors of the Sheriff’s Office, or online on Rockingham County's Website: www.co.rockingham.nc.us It should be noted that in section 1-7, it states that it shall be unlawful for any person owning or controlling any animal to allow the same to create a nuisance or public danger by running at large.  

Healthy, adoptable cats and dogs are euthanized each year in Rockingham County because there simply are not enough homes for them all.  Help end the euthanizing of innocent dogs and cats by reducing the number of unwanted births by making sure that your pet can’t have puppies or kittens. You’ll have peace of mind that his or her offspring won’t be euthanized in an animal shelter if you spay or neuter your pet.
