Chino Valley Animal Control is a division of the Chino Valley Police Department and is responsible for enforcing the Town's animal ordinances. The shelter is located in the Town complex to the south of the Police Department, behind the Public Works maintenance building.

The Animal Control department is staffed by one Animal Control Officer and two Adoption Specialists. They protect stray, injured, abused and unwanted animals on a daily basis; in addition to helping the public deal with problems caused by animals. The officers protect the Town by overseeing rabies vaccination (a public health risk) through an extensive licensing program that generates thousands of dollars in revenues
