This has been our busiest year and we need your help! We have many dogs that need to be walked, bathed, loved and adopted. Volunteers are always welcome! And many thanks to the volunteers we have now!!
Dog Obedience Classes - Citizens Welcome!
All participants MUST have shown the following items to Animal Services before they will be allowed to attend the class:
1. Completed Obedience class registration form
2. Current Rabies Vaccination
3. Proof of county License
These classes are FREE to anyone who has adopted a dog from our shelter. However, If you have not adopted your dog from Animal Services, you are still welcome if class space allows. We only can allow a certain number of dogs in a class at a time and adopted pets will have first choice. We are just asking that you make a $20.00 donation prior to the first class if you did not adopt your pet here.
Items you will need to have in the class are:
a 6 foot leash...
a collar that your dog responds to well...
training treats are recommended...
wear proper shoes...
and we recommend to bring water.
If you are interested in joining the class please stop by AS and fill out an application. Classes are on-going and held on Thursday night.
Who We Are
The primary mission of the Animal Services Division is to educate the public about responsible pet ownership, enforce the Animal Services Ordinance, while providing shelter for impounded animals.
The Animal Services Officers investigate animal bites, citizen complaints, enforce the Animal Services Ordinance, impound stray animals, issue citations for violations, investigate cruelty and neglect, prosecute court cases, and respond to emergency calls.
