Animal Control

The Wentzville Police Department has two, full-time Animal Control Officers:  Mimi Mahoney and Alexis Yost.

To report complaints of animals at large, dog bites, barking dogs, vicious animals, or for any other domesticated animal complaints or questions; contact the Wentzville Police Department's Communications Division at (636) 327-5105.  An email may also be sent to for issues that are non-emergency related or are not in progress, as the email is only checked when the Animal Control Officers are on duty.
