Welcome! Choose from a list of Animal Services options on the left and learn all about our department!

The education and intervention of the public's safety and its animals are our first priority. Maintaining the health and welfare of people and animals is important to us. We envision the day when all citizens, their property and their neighborhoods will be safe from the dangers and nuisances of irresponsible pet ownership, when animals will not suffer because of human abuse, neglect or ignorance.

We are more than an adoption center. Take a look around the website for information on breed rescue, our spay/neuter voucher program, animal licensing, and other laws pertaining to animals. If you love being around animals we also offer many opportunities to volunteer. Just check out our links to the left and find out how the Animal Services and Adoption Center can help you.
