Animal Control

Animal Control Officer and woman looking at impounded dogsThe 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:

  • Barking dogs complaints
  • Dog bites
  • Lost and found dogs
  • Neglected, abused, loose, and vicious dogs

Wildlife Issues

Federal and state laws do not allow animal control officers to address problems, handle, relocate, or otherwise interfere with any types of wildlife, including but not limited to raccoon, opossum, birds, or other animals. Officers will, however, be available to answer questions and assist on the scene until appropriate resources can be summoned to assist you. Find Animal Agencies that may be able to help.


With the exception of animal cruelty cases, state law and City ordinances do not allow officers to address issues regarding domestic felines (cats). Again, you can find agencies that can help you with feline-related problems by accessing our Animal Agencies page.
