Animal Care & Control

cmpd animal care and control dog cat logoNeed help navigating our site? Watch this!

See what we did in August.

Things to know when you come visit:

  • 1 pet interaction per family per day. (There may be time for a second interaction based on how busy it is at the time of your visit.)
  • Please be PATIENT and kind with our staff as they work extremely hard to assist all visitors.
  • If you are looking for a missing pet check the lost/found section but you NEED TO COME TO THE SHELTER to ID and reclaim in person. PLEASE DO NOT CALL OR MESSAGE!
  • Send us a private message on our social pages if you have any questions about an adoptable pet before coming to visit. This will help minimize your wait time.

  • If you have a concern about a loose animal or potential cruelty, call 311.

  • Other general questions can be sent via private message to our social pages.
