Animal Control

The cities of Camas and Washougal know that your dog is a valued member of your household. As such, the Camas-Washougal Animal Control Division of the Washougal Police Department was formed to help safeguard your pet. The Animal Control Division also works within these communities to address neglected, abused, loose and vicious dogs, barking dogs complaints, dog bites, and lost and found dogs.
