The City of Beaumont is proud to provide the city's own Animal Control Services Department. In
addition to serving the City of Beaumont, as of July 1, 2010, Beaumont extended animal control services to meet the needs of our neighboring community of Calimesa and a limited partnership with the Morongo Band of Mission Indians.
Please note: as of July 1, 2018, Animal Control no longer provides services to the City of Banning. The City of Banning now contracts with the Riverside County Animal Services Department.
The Animal Control Services goal is to improve the quality of life for both our citizens as well as our community's pets. Animal Control Services will also be responsible for the enforcement of state and local animal laws and regulations, including licensing of animals.
For information about animals that have been recovered by Animal Control Services, please contact our non-emergency business line at 951-769-8500.
The City of Beaumont makes every effort to return lost pets to their owners. When this is not possible, animals are taken to the Ramona Humane Society. To contact the shelter regarding lost pets, please call 951-654-8002 or visit the shelter at:
690 Humane Way
San Jacinto, CA 92582
Lost animals can also be viewed on Ramona's website.

Wildlife in Beaumont
Nestled in the foothills of the San Gorgonio Pass, Beaumont is home to a variety of local wildlife. Before our beautiful residential communities were built bobcats, coyotes, rabbits, and many other small creatures roamed the outskirts of town. Now we must learn to co-exist with our shared community. With some knowledge of wildlife and a little planning, we can learn to live peacefully with these native species.
