Animal Control

Northeast Animal Control 

Mission Woods contracts with Northeast Animal Control for animal control services. Animal Control handles complaints concerning lost or injured animals. Animal Control services are available Monday through Saturday. Call the Johnson County non emergency dispatcher, 913-782-0720, to report a missing pet or to request a pick up.

City Ordinance 

City ordinance limits each household to two dogs and two cats. All pets must be registered with City Hall at the first of the calendar year.  Proof of current immunization shots is required for the license and tags.

No dog or cat shall be allowed to roam at large within the city at any time.  The animal must be kept on the owner's property or restrained by a leash.  The city also has a "pooper scooper" ordinance.  These are enforced from time to time as needed, to curb violations.

A barking dog periodically causes friction among neighbors. The city noise ordinance attempts to objectify what is objectionable and prohibited. It also deals with noise from animals left unattended.
