Gorse City's animal control department was a government department charged with animal control in Gorse City on the Inner Rim planet Gorse. The department was shut down by the Galactic Empire sometime between 19 BBY and 11 BBY to cut costs, with the Empire preferring to let a local blood cult with a penchant for animal sacrifice deal with stray animals for free.

Notes and references
- A New Dawn
- Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the formation of the Galactic Empire to 19 BBY. Star Wars Rebels: The Visual Guide states that Kanan Jarrus and Hera Syndulla first met, as depicted in A New Dawn, six years before the beginning of Star Wars Rebels, which Galactic Atlas dates to 5 BBY, indicating that A New Dawn is set in 11 BBY. As the animal control department was shut down before the events of A New Dawn but after the formation of the Empire, it must have been shut down between 19 and 11 BBY.
