Animal Shelter

The animal control division of the West Haven Police Department is conveniently located at 7 Collis Street, next door to the West Haven Public Works Garage.

Animal Control
Animal control officers are given the responsibility of enforcing all local and state laws pertaining to the welfare, control and safe handling of animals. Through this responsibility, the animal control division investigates animal-related complaints, including nuisance calls, abandoned animals, sick or injured animals and animals in unfavorable living conditions. The animal control division also cares for animals that are waiting to be adopted.

The animal control division is supervised by Sgt. Eric Pimer. This unit is also staffed by Animal Control Officers Denise Ford, Janice Melin and Nikki Stancarone.
