Stray Animals

If you are experiencing a problem with a stray animal in your neighborhood, please consider these options:

  • You can contact the Fargo Police Department's dispatch center at 701-235-4493 to report a stray animal on your property. If community service officers capture the animal, they will take it to the Fargo City Animal Pound. This facility is managed by the City of Fargo, not the Fargo Police Department.  

  • You can visit the Fargo City Animal Pound to pick up a humane trap that you can use to capture the animal. The deposit you pay for the trap will be refunded when you return it. If you capture an animal, please bring the animal to the pound while it is still in the trap. The pound is located in the same building as the Valley Veterinary Hospital at 3210 Main Avenue and is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
