About Washoe County Regional Animal Services

Note that NHS is not in the animal control business (i.e., rounding up strays, etc.). In Washoe County, that task is handled by Washoe County Regional Animal Services, which is a function of the Sheriff's Office. To report stray animals or file a complaint (such as barking dogs), call Animal Services at (775) 353-8900. You can also learn how to deal with various animal problems at "Requesting Animal Services Assistance."
