The City of Beaumont is proud to provide the city's own Animal Control Services Department. 

Please Note: As of February 7, 2024, Animal Control NO longer accepts owner surrenders of animals.  We encourage our residents to seek out assistance from local rescues, foster and/or other pet adoption services for rehoming or go to the website for additional resources.

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.
