Animal Protection Services

The Will County Animal Protection Services Department provides a comprehensive Animal Protection Services Program for Will county residents. Our staff includes four Animal Protection Services officers that respond to resident's reports regarding bites to humans caused by animals.  The officers also respond to common Animal Protection Services complaints received from residents living in the unincorporated areas of Will County not served by other local Animal Protection Services programs.

The Animal Protection Services Program maintains a twenty-four hour answering service and emergency pick-up for confined stray animals, injured animals and stray biters. Will County Animal Protection Services facility consists of administrative offices only.  We do not have the capacity to house any animals for adoption.  We cannot accept owner turn-ins, or drop offs.

If you can no longer keep or house your pet please contact your local animal shelters. If you have adopted your pet from a shelter or other adoption agency, you should review your adoption contract.  Many agencies have a policy that states to return the pet to that particular agency.
