The Animal Control Section is part of the Administrative Support Division of the Madison Police Department.  Stray or loose animals are subject to being detained by the Animal Control Section. There is a leash law in the City of Madison.  All animals outside of the confines of a fenced yard or home must be leashed.  If you believe your pet has been picked up, or if you have lost your pet, please call the police dispatcher at 601-856-6111 and ask to speak with an Animal Control Officer.  Efforts will be made to reunite you with your pet.  The City of Madison Webster Animal Shelter provides boarding and sheltering of lost pets until owners can be identified and located or adoptions can be facilitated.
