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 and does not offer traps for trapping animals. If there is a dead animal in the street or parkway, it will be picked up by the Public Works Department. For assistance in the collection of a dead animal in the street or parkway, please call 708-246-1800 ext. 200.
