The Hoquiam Animal Control Department is a division of the Hoquiam Police Department.

Animal Control is charged with upholding and enforcing regulations/ordinances regarding the treatment and control of animals in the city.

Animal control means not only protecting people from the nuisance of domestic, roaming animals, but also protecting animals from neglectful and cruel circumstances.

Animal control ordinances serve three purposes:

  • protection of people
  • protection of property
  • protection of animals

The Hoquiam Animal Control Officer is Tom Taylor. He patrols the city armed with doggie treats, a leash and a very real love and concern for our “four-legged citizens”.  He also has a wealth of good advice for pet owners and is always ready to help any citizen pet owner with a few tips and tricks of the trade.

“My first priority of course is to the public,” says ACO Taylor, “especially when it concerns the safety of the families and nuisance animals. My second priority is directed toward the care and well being of the pets in Hoquiam. I respond very quickly to reports of animal neglect and cruelty and encourage the public to report it.”

All domestic animals over the age of six months living in Hoquiam must be licensed. Contact Animal Control at (360) 532-0892 X107 for further details.
