The mission of NLR Animal Shelter is to provide consistent and effective animal control services to the residents of North Little Rock. Our department will operate in a manner that focuses on public safety and active enforcement of state and local laws to assist with the reduction of stray animals through adoption and rescue. We will not turn away stray or owned animals from within our jurisdiction, even if the unfortunate circumstance arises having to involve humane euthanasia. Turning away animals only compounds the pet overpopulation issue. We will be transparent regarding our policies, procedures and the use of public funds.
