Animal Control consists of two full-time officers who are responsible for enforcing animal ordinances of the City of Steamboat Springs Municipal Code.
Animal Control Officers (ACOs) respond to calls for animal complaints such as: dogs at large
In addition, the ACOs handle calls relating to horses, cattle, and all domestic/pet animals.
Daily duties include investigations, daily, monthly and annual reports, issuing citations and warnings, and patrol. Their presence within the community provides public education as well as enforcement.
All animals in Routt County are required to be licensed every calendar year. The City of Steamboat Springs Municipal Code recognizes the Routt County license for its requirements. All licenses expire on December 31 of the year issued and the next year's license must be purchased by January 31.
