Animal Control Officer Heidi Nelson
The Animal Control Officer for the Town of Brunswick enforces both State laws and Town ordinances with regards to animal matters, issuing warnings and summonses, and preparing court cases when necessary. Common complaints are dogs running at large, nuisance barking and dog bites.
Animal Control assists residents with lost, sick, found or injured animals. Responsibilities include ensuring all dogs are licensed and all dogs and cats are current on their rabies vaccine. Educating the public on how to safely interact with animals, both wild and domestic, is also a major part of Animal Control’s responsibilities.
The Animal Control Officer has a limited role with wild animals. The primary concern with wildlife is rabies protection.
