Animal Services

Animal Services provides a safe, comfortable, and humane environment for all animals in our care. We promote adoptions, responsible pet ownership, and community involvement while working towards reducing pet overpopulation in our community. We strive to reunite lost pets with their owners, determine the most appropriate outcome for animals in our care, provide veterinary forensic evidence, and maintain evidence for cruelty cases. Animal Services is also responsible for protecting people and pets in our community from health-related issues and ensure the public’s safety.
