In 2001, the Warren County Sheriff’s Office assumed responsibility of Animal Control. Prior to this date, Animal Control was under the dominion of the Warren County Administration. The Warren County Sheriff’s Office provides enforcement of all animal control issues within the County of Warren and the Town of Front Royal. Animal law enforcement, including the methods of capture, confinement, and disposition of nuisance animals, both domestic and feral, requires that the animals be treated in the most humane manner possible.
County or Town residents who require the assistance of Warren County Animal Control are to contact the Warren County Sheriff’s Office at 540-635-4128 or in the case of an emergency, 911. This includes any questions dealing with wildlife matters.
The Warren County Sheriff's Office Records Center maintains all records for the Sheriff’s Office and is responsible for the entry of all incident reports, traffic summons, warrants, and arrests. Eviction Notices, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) forms, taxi cab applications, applicant fingerprints, and accident reports can be obtained at this office.
