License Information & Fees
We recommend that you begin by speaking with the dog owner about your concerns and try to come up with a solution. Oftentimes, the owners are not home during the barking episodes and are completely unaware that a problem exists. If you are uncomfortable speaking with the dog owner, or the problem has not been resolved after communicating with the dog owner, you may call Animal Care & Services at (775) 782-9061 to file a complaint.
If you find a stray cat, you may contact Animal Care & Services to file a found animal report. Once a report has been made, our staff will review the lost cat reports on file to see if there is a match. If there is no match, you may hold onto the cat until an owner calls, or if no one calls searching for the cat within five days, it will be considered an abandoned animal and you may release the cat to Animal Care & Services, if the space is available. Please consider that we have very limited space, and oftentimes we may not have the ability to accept any cats for weeks or even months at a time.
It is important to read the job announcement carefully for specific requirements. Often we require certain information to be included or attached to the application, i.e., printout of driving record, typing certificate, POST certificate or other education and/or training to meet minimum requirements.
