How do I report a dog or cat bite?

If you or someone else was bitten by a dog or cat, seek immediate medical attention. Call 911 if your injury is severe.

  • After seeking medical care, call the Florida Department of Health (DOH) in Miami-Dade County Epidemiology Disease Control and Immunization Services at (305) 470-5660 and/or Miami-Dade County Animal Control at 311 to report the bite. 
  • You can complete an Animal Bite Report online so that an Animal Control Officer from Animal Services can be dispatched to investigate.
  • If the person received medical attention from a private doctor or ER, the medical staff is required to report the incident to the local Health Department.
