Animal Care & Control

AC&C has suspended the intake of healthy cats and kittens due to an outbreak of feline panleukopenia int he shelter.

This is for the safety of the cats/kittens within the shelter as well as for the ones that could be affected coming in.

Sick and injured felines will still be accepted however, there is a high risk of euthanasia due to the outbreak and capacity for care.

We are working diligently to recover from the outbreak, and we are asking the public to help in finding other resources for felines found in the community.

See what we did in June.

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.
