The Orono Police Department has one Community Service Officer (CSO), whose primary duty is to handle animal control problems throughout the jurisdiction of the Orono Police Dept. The CSO jurisdiction covers Orono, Mound, Minnetonka Beach and Spring Park.
Each city has an ordinance that states dogs are not allowed to roam off the property of the owner unless under the control of the owner on a leash. If a dog is found in violation of the ordinance, the dog may possibly be impounded to a kennel and the owner fined. All dogs must be licensed by the City in which the owner resides.
Dogs impounded within Orono, Spring Park, Mound and Minnetonka Beach are impounded to the Crossroads Animal Shelter, 2800 - 10th Street S.E., Buffalo, MN, 55313. Their phone number is 763-684-1234.
To obtain a dog license, kennel license, or a copy of the ordinance, please contact your City Hall.
