Animal Control Officers
The Liberal Animal Shelter ACO's are responsible for enforcing the City of Liberal's animal control ordinances. ACO's are much more than a "dog catcher." They not only capture stray animals but also patrol neighborhoods, educate owners/public, conduct welfare checks, conduct criminal investigations, prepare reports and testify in court in an attempt to improve the lives of animals & citizens within Liberal.
For Wildlife Concerns
Liberal Animal Control does not generally deal with wildlife unless it is causing property damage and/or an immediate danger to life. For wildlife complaints, please contact the local game warden:
