Animal Care & Control about to lose 36 Dog Kennels to Renovations

Community support is needed now more than ever.

 The animals need your support, now more than ever! We've been saying how full we are, but our next phase of construction is going to lower our space even more. We need move 36 dogs by September 27. Here's how you can help.

Check out our information we provided from our press conference.

We need fosters and adopters now more than ever with the current dog crisis that we are in.
We are also experiencing high call for service volume; mostly for loose dogs. We ask for your patience and understanding with response times.
