Animal Services is an environmental health program of the Community Services Department designed to promote public health and safety through education, enforcement and legislation. The major objectives of Animal Services are to protect the public from diseases (such as rabies) that can be transmitted from animals to humans, to reduce the number of traffic emergencies caused by uncontrolled animals, to abate nuisances and annoyance to citizens caused by animals, to reunite pets with owners, to promote the adoption of unwanted or stray animals housed at the City’s animal shelter and to operate the City’s animal shelter in a humane and sanitary manner.
Animal Services provides the following services:
- Removal of stray animals
- Public education programs
- Animal bite investigations
- Return of pets to owners
- Nuisance complaints
- Dangerous animal complaints
- Quarantine animals
- Removal of dead animals
- Loan of animal traps
The $85.00 adoption fee is a great value as it includes over $200.00 of veterinary services including heartworm testing for dogs over 6 months of age, feline leukemia testing for cats over 6 months of age, sterilization, rabies and selected vaccinations, microchip, and a free veterinarian exam at participating vet clinics.
**NOTE Kaboodles of cuddly, cute kittens will be up for adoption in the coming weeks. Kittens can be viewed at the adoption center.
