Responsibilities

The Animal Adoption and Care Shelter is responsible for all phases of animal control. This includes the operation and maintenance of the animal shelter and the enforcement of related ordinances. However, our main focus is on animal adoptions.

Pet Owners Responsibilities

All residents are asked to note the following ordinance regarding dogs and cats running at large:
