2. What should I do if I find a lost dog?
You should first ascertain if the dog was found in the municipal limits of Elizabeth. Lots of Elizabeth area street addresses are actually in the County. If the dog is in the County, the Elbert County Sheriff’s Office should be contacted at (303) 621 2027. If the dog was found within town limits, then first try to find out who the owner may be by checking for tags, asking neighbors etc. If the owner cannot be located, then you can call the dispatch telephone number or take the dog yourself to the nearest animal shelter or lastly bring the dog to the police station. The Town cannot accept dogs at large that are found outside the Town limits.
3. When can I have my fingerprints taken or a V.I.N Inspection?
Those services are performed at the Police Station. The Office is open 8am to 5 pm Monday through Friday, closed 12pm to 1pm for lunch and closed on Town observed Holidays. Sometimes, the front office can get busy, and so it is preferred that you call first and make an appointment. Please visit the Records section of this webpage for associated costs.
