Animal Control

Throughout 2018, the Northeast Animal Control Commission, or NEACC, spent considerable time discussing its operations and viability for the future. Some of the participating cities were exploring the idea of leaving the group, which was established in 1983. In the end, the Commission voted in favor of dissolution of the agreement and the City of Mission agreed to provide similar services to each of the former members. The transition should be a seamless from NEACC to the City of Mission with Mission providing substantially the same service. The only noticeable change will be a new animal control vehicle with the City of Mission’s logo. Currently, the City of Mission contracts with Melissa's Second Chances as its animal sheltering partner.

  • When my neighbor's dog won't stop barking.
  • When I see a dog running loose.
  • When I suspect an animal is being abused or neglected.
  • When there is a dead animal on my street.

Call Animal Control at Johnson County Dispatch non-emergency number
at 913-782-0720.

For concerns regarding wild animals on your property, contact a private contractor. Animal Control does not respond to these calls.


When a neighbor's dog won't stop barking, please call Animal Control 913-782-0720 and be prepared to provide the address where the dog is located. The call needs to be made while the barking is occurring, so sending an email notice to the City is not effective. A Community Service Officer or Police Officer will respond to the call.


If your pet is missing and you believe it may have been collected by Animal Control, contact Melissa's Second at 913-364-1822, as soon as possible. Unclaimed animals may be released for adoption after 72 hours.
