The City of Yukon Animal Control and Facility and Pets and People Humane Society are two separate entities. Though both used to share a building, they are independent of each other. Neither organization can answer questions for the other and neither has information on the other's animals or procedures.

To reach the City of Yukon Animal Control and Facility call 405-350-4PET (4738).

To reach Pets and People Humane Society call 405-350-PETS (7387).

Both organizations are short staffed at the moment and phones are not able to be answered at times throughout the day but both organizations have voicemail so please leave a message with the appropriate organization.

Please google Pets and People for further information on their organization.

If you call the Animal Control facility and no one answers, please know we are cleaning, disinfecting and taking care of the animals, we will call back when we have time to do so.

Masks must be worn in all City of Yukon buildings

About Yukon Animal Control & Animal Control Facility

The Yukon Animal Control Division serves the community (click for boundary map) by locating and acquiring stray domestic animals commonly found on city streets and public areas. Deceased animals are also removed from these areas and disposed of by Animal Control Officers.

Yukon Animal Control encourages responsible pet ownership and is tasked with protecting Yukon residents and visitors and the pets in our area. The Yukon Animal Control Facility accepts domestic animal turn-in's with proof of residency by providing a copy of your current City of Yukon Water Bill, your Oklahoma driver’s license or identification with matching address to the water bill and paying a fee.

Stray Animals

If the Yukon Animal Control has picked up your stray or unrestrained animal, a fee will be charged for the animal's return. Stray animals picked up will be kept for up to 5 working days. You can look for lost pets during open public hours Monday through Saturday 10am to 6pm.

Adoptions
