Animal Control in Worcester County

On February 11, Chief Glen Grandstaff of the Worcester County Department of Animal Control addressed the Snow Hill Rotary Club. Grandstaff has been with Worcester County since 2007.

Rabies is a big local concern with 18 cases identified in Worcester County in 2019. That likely only represents a small percentage of the actual number of infected animals in the wild. It is important to have household pets vaccinated and to report any suspected wildlife, especially raccoons and foxes.

The mission of the Department is to provide public safety, enforce cruelty laws to alleviate pain and suffering and provide low cost spay and neutering to reduce unwanted pet population. Animal Control administers an average of 100 pet adoptions per year. Follow Worcester County Animal Control on Facebook to learn more.
