The City of Mesquite Animal Services Division is dedicated to rabies eradication, reducing animal euthanasia and controlling the animal population through a cooperative effort with the community.
Accomplishing this will require:
Quick and courteous responses to service requests
Promoting animal placements by increasing animal adoptions
Establishing working relationships with animal rescue organizations
Providing education to the members of the community on rabies eradication, animal care and disease prevention and animal
The responsibility and accountability for achieving these objectives are shared by each staff member. Employees are responsible for understanding the relation of their job duties to the dedication of the division in respect to the objectives listed above. The success of the division is directly related to the commitment each member is willing to extend to their community.
With sincere commitment, Mesquite Animal Services will assure the citizens of Mesquite that we will work diligently towards making a difference by adding another life-saving service to our community.
