Animal Control

Mission Statement

To work in and with our community to provide leadership in the humane treatment of all animals, to address the causes of suffering, to encourage people to take responsibility for their animal companions and to provide care for animals who are neglected, abused, exploited stray or homeless.

Wildlife Removal

Occasionally residents encounter skunks, possums, and other small wildlife who have made a home under porches and back yard decks. Bolingbrook Animal Control is available to assist with traps and advice on how to deter these critters from remaining. We can be reached during regular business hours at (630) 226-8500. Nights and weekends, please call (630) 226-8670. In addition, the Village of Bolingbrook is providing a list of licensed private professionals in the area who can be hired to assist with wildlife problems.

If a resident would like to trap the animal themselves, they must first obtain a permit from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.

Missing Pet

When your pet disappears, move quickly, before it has time to go far; 90% of lost dogs and cats are found within two miles of where they were lost. Mobilize help - family, neighbors, and friends and assign tasks to everyone. Have some one call Bolingbrook Animal Control at 630-226-8500. Walk and drive through the neighborhood calling your pets. Have two people in the car when you are searching, so one can drive while the other looks. Be cautious when calling around busy intersections - your pet may try to cross the street to get to you.

  • If your pet is friendly with strangers, check parks and schools.
  • If your pet is shy, frightened, or injured, check places that offer seclusion.
  • Leave the gate to your yard open in case your dog returns home on its own.
