The Corvallis Police Department recommends that dog owners participate in dog obedience training. To locate a dog trainer, consult local directories under "Dog training," call a humane society, or consult with your veterinarian.
Cats are considered personal property. Cats are permitted to roam at large, but they are required to wear a collar, tag, or other device identifying the cat's owner. An owner of a cat which damages the property of others, including gardens, may be found liable for damages resulting from the animal's behavior. "Dangerous" cats can also be impounded or destroyed when at large.
Impounded animals are taken to the Heartland Humane Society Shelter, 398 SW Twin Oaks Circle, 541-757-9000. Please call for shelter hours.

The finders may surrender the animal to the Animal Control Officer or the Heartland Humane Society or retain possession of it, subject to surrender upon demand of the Animal Control Officer.
