Animal Control

Lost Pets

The Police Department frequently retrieves lost pets. If a pet has a license (as required by the Village), pet and owner are quickly reunited. Owners are assessed a $35 fee for lost pets. Please call the Police non-emergency number at 708-246-8540 regarding lost pets.

Wild Animals

The village does not collect or destroy wild animals. Dead animals in the street or parkway will be picked up by the Public Works Department. For assistance in the collection of a dead animal, please call 708-246-1800 ext. 200.

Traps are available at the Police Department for residents to use in trapping squirrels, possums, raccoons, etc.; however, residents are responsible for removal and disposal of live animals.
