If bitten by an animal:

  • Contact Animal Control at (806) 296-1158 and be prepared to provide the following details:
    • Type of animal
    • Breed (if known)
    • Color
    • Gender (if known)
    • Location of animal
    • Current rabies vaccination of animal (if known)
    • Your contact information
    • Information regarding the owner of the animal (if known)
