Animal Control

Animal control cases are heard by the judges of the Ordinance Division of the Magistrate Court of DeKalb County. These offenses are violations of the county code of ordinances that usually involve issues concerning pets running loose, rabies and vaccination tag deficiencies, and dog bite cases. 

If you are charged with rabies and vaccination tag violations, you should update your pet’s documents and bring those with you to court.
