Animal Abuser Search

Animal ownership carries with it both rights and responsibilities to the humane treatment, care, and control of owned animals.

Pasco County Ordinance Number 17-01 forbids knowingly selling, exchanging, or otherwise transferring cats or dogs to individuals who have been charged and convicted of an animal cruelty offense on or after March 1, 2017.

To perform the required search, please enter the last name, first name, and date of birth of the person to whom the dog or cat will be transferred. The search will return a court case record if the person has an animal cruelty conviction for the period covered by the ordinance.
