Domestic animals impounded by the Ramsey County Sheriff's Department are taken to the Animal Humane Society, 9785 Hudson Road, Woodbury. The shelter can be reached at 952-435-7738. Phone hours are 9:00 am to 7:00 pm, Monday – Friday, and Saturday 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. Shelter pick-up is by appointment only. Call 952-435-7738. Impound animals are kept for five business days. Owners claiming their pets will need to show photo identification; proof of ownership; and payment of fees.
Town ordinances require all domestic animals (dogs, cats, etc.) to be leashed when not on their owner’s property. Many city ordinances penalize a person who owns, harbors, or keeps a domestic animal that runs at large. If you see a dog running loose, please contact Animal Control by calling 911. If the animal is picked up and attempts to find the owner are unsuccessful it will be transported to an animal shelter.
This is another reason why it is best to report dog bites to law enforcement.
Animal Control will pick up domestic cats in certain circumstances. Animal Control will not accept surrendered domestic cats. By city ordinance cats, like dogs, must be leashed if not on the owner’s private property. Cats that are picked up by Animal Control are transported to the shelter. Feral cats are the offspring of lost or abandoned pet cats or other feral cats who are not spayed or neutered. Unlike stray cats that are accustomed to contact with people and are tame, feral cats are not accustomed to people and are typically too fearful and wild to be handled. Feral cats do not easily adapt, or may never adapt, to living as pets in close contact with people.
The Sheriff’s Office Animal Control services do not include trapping feral cats.
If you live trap an animal, do not take it to some other part of town and release it, as this could potentially spread disease.
Animal Control does not pick up birds for West Nile virus testing.
Domestic animals are brought to a temporary shelter operated by the Animal Humane Society (9785 Hudson Road, Woodbury, Minnesota 55125). They can be reached at phone 952-435-7738 (Mon-Fri from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm, Sat 10:00 am to 6:00 pm). Injured small wildlife with a good chance of survival are brought to the Minnesota Wildlife Rehab Center in Roseville. Injured birds of prey are brought to the University of Minnesota Raptor Center.

Minnesota Statute 204B.195 allows individuals to take time off from work, without penalty or reduction in pay*, to serve as election judges on election day(s). A 20-day written notice requesting to be absent from work for this purpose must be submitted to the employer.
*Without a reduction in pay' means you will earn what you would have at work that day. Generally, this means that your employer has the right to deduct the amount you made being an election judge from your normal day. You can voluntarily take a vacation day to be fully paid by your employer and receive the judge salary you earn as extra income. An employer cannot force you to take vacation or any other form of paid leave.
