Animal Control

If you see an animal that is in need, call the Humane Society of Scott County Animal Control at (563) 388-6655. Visit their website at http://www.hssc.us

The Humane Society of Scott County Animal Control Officer works in our community to protect stray, injured, abused and unwanted animals. They also help the public deal with problems caused by animals.

The animal control officer responds to calls about neglected or lost animals. They are the first people to provide comfort and compassion to animals in need.

  • Rescuing injured animals.
  • Controlling stray and potentially dangerous animals at large.
  • Bringing lost pets to the Humane Society of Scott County where their owners can reclaim them.
  • Investigating animal mistreatment and neglect.

Here are some ways you can help the Animal Control Officer:

  • All cats and dogs in the city of Davenport must be on a leash when being walked.
  • All cats and dogs must have a current city license.
  • All cats and dogs must have a current rabies vaccination.
