The mission of Animal Control is to promote, educate and enforce the humane treatment of our animal population as well as a dedication to rabies eradication.

Accomplishing this will require providing:

  • Quick and courteous responses to service requests
  • Establishing working relationships with animal rescue organizations
  • Providing education to the members of the community on animal care, rabies eradication, and safety around animals

Each Animal Control Officer (ACO) shares the responsibility, and accountability, for achieving these objectives. The success of the unit is directly related to the commitment that each officer is willing to extend to their community.
