Animal Services General

 

Animal Services has the following responsibilities: Maintaining the health and safety of the animals in their care and custody; overseeing the dog licensing program for county residents; providing outreach and education services; and responding to public complaints, reports of vicious animals, dog bites, and animal neglect cases. Animal Services’ primary goal is to find new homes for shelter animals through adoptions, foster parents, and rescue groups. 

Your donations to the Animal Services General Fund are used for purchasing educational materials; covering expenses associated with providing low-cost vaccination and microchip clinics to the county’s rural communities; purchasing general supplies to improve the animals’ health; transporting animals to rescue organizations; and for various other items to enhance the program’s education and outreach efforts. If you care about animals and are looking for a way to make a difference—this is it!
