Animal Care & Control lost 36 Dog Kennels to Renovations

Community support is needed now more than ever.

Our next phase of construction lowered our kennels space reducing dog housing by 36. While we are under construction, scheduled through the month of October, we need to keep dogs out of our shelter through community rehoming and reunion efforts rather than bringing them to us, and by having adopters, fosters, and rescues helping to move current dogs in our shelter daily. Here's how you can help.

Check out our information we provided from our press conference.

We are also experiencing high call for service volume, mostly for loose dogs. We ask for your patience and understanding with response times.
