Animal Control is located in the Public Works Building at Schoolcraft and Farmington.
Pets are required to be on a leash securely held by a person of appropriate age and discretion with the ability to control the animal on streets, sidewalks, parks, public places, or on private property of another, unless express permission has been granted by the owner of that property.
No. All dogs (and cats) must be on a leash in a City park. In addition, any animal feces must be removed by the owner.
No. It shall be unlawful for the owner or any other person having the possession, custody, care or control thereof to permit any cat to be at large upon the public walks, parks, or any other public place within the City, or upon any private property within the City without the permission of the owner or occupant of such private property.
Three dogs and/or three cats on your premises.
You need a current Rabies Certificate from your veterinarian for all cats and dogs over four months of age. You can take the certificate either to the City Clerk's office in City Hall, and for a fee, you can purchase a license.
The City of Livonia has a contract with the Michigan Humane Society and we take all stray and wild animals there.
Wild animals are free-roaming and are not considered a public problem unless they are obviously sick, injured or in distress. Animal Control cannot transport healthy wildlife. If you encounter sick, injured or distressed animals, please contact Animal Control Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., or the Police Department after hours and on weekends. You do not need to hire a pest control company.
If the incident occurs between the hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m, call Public Service at (734) 466-2655 and an animal bite report will be recorded. If the bite occurs after hours, or on the weekend, call the Livonia Police Department at (734) 466-2470 and they will take the report. Any medical reports should be included with the bite report.
Yes, but only if the owner calls and reports the animal missing. The Police Department keeps a record of the lost animal and will also keep a record of found animals if they are called in.
No. You must call your own Pest control removal service.
