The Animal Control Unit is comprised of four full-time animal control officers. They are Mt. Lebanon employees who report to the support services division of the police department. Mt. Lebanon has a cooperative agreement with several other South Hills communities to share the services and costs associated with the program. A kennel for housing animals is maintained in Upper St Clair.
Animal Control officers respond to calls for service of loose, stray, and lost pets. They respond to requests for trapping wild animals such as raccoons and handle ordinance violations relating to roaming or barking dogs and humane animal concerns.
