Thompson Animal Control's mission is to educate citizens regarding responsible pet ownership, protect and advocate for the animals in our town, and create an environment where people and pets live cohesively.
Thompson Animal Control has a no-kill philosophy and will make every effort to find good homes for our healthy, non-aggressive animal guests.
Owning a pet comes with a lot of responsibility-physically, financially, and emotionally. Make sure you and everyone who lives in your household are ready to take on this responsibility before you bring a pet home!
Adopting a pet from a municipal shelter can be challenging, but it may be one of the most rewarding events of your life. Very often shelter animals come in with a history that is completely unknown to us. We give them temporary names which adopters can certainly change, so don't be surprised when they don't respond to the name we've just given them. They may need house training, leash training, and they may need to be taught the most basic commands. We do our best to temperament test them and place them with adopters best suited for their needs so we do not use a 1st come, 1st served philosophy. A shelter animal can often be the most loyal and loving pet you have ever owned; they seem to know you are rescuing them and providing them with the life they deserve. Their love and loyalty to you will be unwavering for a lifetime!
