The goal of the Animal Control Department is to provide safe, humane shelter for unwanted, stray, abused and impounded dogs in accordance with state regulations. The Department is responsible for assuring the timely and effective enforcement of the town’s ordinances and state laws. The Department strives to protect the public’s health and safety from vicious, diseased or injured dogs, to educate the public about responsible canine care and ownership and to reduce the number of unwanted dogs in the community.
We believe that our entire community is benefited by the compassion and humanity shown in caring for animals which have been discarded. The animals cannot speak for themselves, we will speak for them by providing a clean and safe environment for them until they move on to their next home.
