There are almost as many animals in Douglas County as there are people. We’re here for them, too.


 Public Workshop for Proposed Amendments to the Douglas County Resolution for the Control and Licensing of Dogs and Household Pets

Residents of unincorporated Douglas County are invited to attend a Public Workshop, on Thursday, October 18 from 6 – 7:30 p.m.,  at the Philip S. Miller Building Hearing Room, 100 Third Street in Castle Rock.  Staff will present an overview of the proposed changes and and answer questions.
Residents will also be able to provide comments at the workshop or online through November 2.

Dogs and cats. Horses and cattle. Roosters, hens and more. They’re at home in over half of the households in Douglas County.

So we take their protection very seriously. We want to make sure all are treated with care every day and in disasters.

If your dog gets out of the yard, there’s a good chance we’ll find him. And because we know how much they love to slip the leash, we’ve created off-leash parks where they can safely do just that.

Since we also share our county with wildlife, we look out for them, too.  The chance seeing a deer or elk is one of the reasons many of us love it here,  so we have programs to protect them from traffic and poaching.
