Animal welfare shelter
We provide a temporary home for animals until a responsible life-long home can be found.
While at our shelter, animals receive quality medical care, nutrition, socialization, exercise, and behavioral training. We do a detailed evaluation of them to help us determine the kind of home that would suit them best.
We are also responsible for picking up stray dogs and transporting injured animals to receive veterinary care.
Be a responsible pet owner
Our animal services officers also investigate dog biting incidents, excessive barking complaints, and enforce the scoop, licensing and leashing law.
To keep your dog away from incidents and complaints, please always maintain control over your dog and ensure they are always leashed unless in a designated off-leash area.
