Animal Control Services

 With the absence of Humane Officer Sue Baker, all animal services within the city of Plattsmouth were temporarily placed on hold.   The Plattsmouth Police Department has recently contracted with the Nebraska Humane Society to assist in continuing animal related services through the city until Sue Baker is able to resume her normal duties. 


 The public is asked to contact the police department with any animal related issues, and assistance will be provided at that time.  The humane society will not respond or assist with any calls directly received from individuals within the city limits of Plattsmouth.


 Please contact the Plattsmouth Police Department at 296-3311 with any questions about this matter.
