The Levelland Police Department has received reports about scammers calling Levelland citizens saying they are with the Levelland Animal Control.
The scammer then tells the person they have picked up their animal and that they need to pay a fine to get it back. This is NOT Levelland Animal Control, it is someone attempting to scam citizens out of money.
They are calling from a private or restricted number, and stating “if you do not come get your dog they will be put down immediately. If you receive a call and are not sure if it is legitimate, contact the Levelland Police Department at 894-6164 and the dispatcher will get you in contact with an Animal Warden.
You are also remined that our Animal Wardens only work 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Friday. If you receive a call outside of that time frame, it is highly possible it is a scam.
Levelland Animal Wardens will only call you directly when you have called into the police department and requested a call back. If you have any questions or concerns contact the Levelland Police Department.
