Animal Control


Animal Control Unit


Richfield, Eden Prairie and the Metropolitan Airport Commission (MAC) have contracted with the Bloomington Police Department's Animal Control Unit to provide animal sheltering services. Animals from these entities are impounded and held at the Bloomington Animal Shelter in accordance with state law and existing contracts

Animal Control responds to nearly 3,000 animal-related calls for service each year. Nearly 600 domestic and non-domestic animals from Bloomington are impounded at the animal shelter each year, most of which are released back to their owners.

The Animal Control Officers also spend considerable time educating youth in the schools on animal safety programs. Each year they visit all elementary schools in Bloomington to deliver a fun-filled animal safety message.

Contact the Animal Control Unit 24 hours a day at 952-563-4942.
