Wakefield NH Police Department

All animal calls for the towns of Brookfield and Wakefield are handled by either the Part-Time Animal Control Officer (ACO) or a Full Time Patrol Officer.  When the ACO is not on duty, all animal calls will be handled by the Patrol Division.


The Wakefield Police Department is equipped with an outdoor animal kennel that is temperature controlled to accommodate the comfort of each animal throughout the change of every season. While awaiting their owner's arrival for pick-up, each animal is fed, watered and exercised each day. Each domestic animal that is located and stored in the kennel will have a photograph, description, and a geographic area in which they were located posted to the Department's Facebook page. If you recognize an animal that is being stored in our kennel, please contact the Wakefield Police Department during business hours Monday-Friday 8am-4pm at 603-522-3232 or 24/7 at the Carroll County Sheriff's Dispatch at 603-539-2284.


The Wakefield Police Department charges a $15.00 kennel fee for all animals brought to the kennel by an Officer or brought by a 3rd party and held longer than two hours after being located. For each additional day your pet is stored at our kennel, an additional $10.00 kennel fee is incurred. Payments must be paid in full prior to a pet being released from the facility.


Please contact the Animal Control Officer for questions regarding fines and payments.


All wild animal calls for service are handled by The New Hampshire Department of Fish and Game at 603-271-3361.

The Wakefield Police Department has a fully heat controlled kennel facility allowing for the temporary housing of dogs, cats and other small animals. The Animal Control Officer oversees the animals' care, with the on duty Officers assisting.  Animals staying in the kennel will have a photograph, description, and the geographic area in which they were found posted on the Department's Facebook page, www.facebook.com/WakefieldPolice, as well as having the information available at the station.
