Animal Control

Domesticated Animals


The Village of Midlothian does not have an animal control officer or a dog catcher; however, a Public Works Employee will respond to calls regarding domesticated animals within the Village of Midlothian boundaries if a resident has them contained. The animal will be transported to the Animal Welfare League facility in Chicago Ridge.

The owner of the animal shall be responsible for any impoundment fees that accrue and must make such payment at the Animal Welfare Facility prior to release of the animal. Animals are euthanized if not claimed or adopted under the policies and procedures of the Animal Control League.

Wild Animals


The department provides animal control for wild animals on public and private property if the animal is injured or poses a threat to human safety.

The Village of Midlothian does not support nor endorse any specific private organization for the trapping and/or recovery of wild animals, however if assistance is needed to remove a wild animal, that is not injured or a threat to human safety the following State Licensed Private Wildlife Removal Resources are available:
