Animal Control is provided to Redford Township residents by Redford Township. We have one full-time animal control officer. The officer responds to calls for service involving domestic animals.

Redford Township Animal Control does not remove animal carcasses from the roadway. If you would like to report an animal that needs to be removed, contact Wayne County Road Commission Dead Animal Removal at 888-ROADCREW (or 888-762-3273).
