Our Animal Control Division is devoted to providing superior animal care while supporting responsible pet ownership. We work to re-unite lost pets with their owners, help sick or injured animals and inform the public about wildlife.

We also handle and investigate animal complaints and enforce animal-related laws, including licensing requirements, animal abandonment and prosecutions for animal cruelty. We strive to make sure that any lost or stray animals are safely kept at our facility for the shortest time possible. We want to make sure that lost pets are returned home quickly and safely. Please protect your pets and increase the chances of recovery by making sure that dogs and cats are micro-chipped and registered in a pet recovery database, along with your up-to-date contact information.

All dogs ages four months and older must be licensed in the City of El Segundo. To submit an application: 

  1. Complete or renew a Pet License Application for your dog.
  2. Email or print the application and return it to the ESPD Station in-person or via U.S. mail
