Animal Control

The Animal Control Officer's (ACO) focus is on educating the public on proper animal care, and rescuing animals from dangerous and/or abusive situations.  The Southbridge Police Department currently employs one full-time ACO who is in charge of handling services ranging from investigating animal cruelty, animal fighting rings, sick or injured animals of any origin and providing shelter to animals that are found.

You can contact the Animal Control Officer, Kathleen Shields, @ (508) 764-5420 or via her voice mail @ (508) 764-2362 x.157.

NOTE* All Dogs must be licensed and current on all shots in the Town of Southbridge or they are subject to a fine and/or impound.
