Area covers 370 total miles in the
city, with a population of 40,000.
The animal shelter of the Animal
Control Department receives an
average of 600 unwanted animals per
month during the summer and an
average of 365 per month during the
rest of the year.
This year we adopted out 1,064
pets! An all-time high ! In 1999 our
staff set a goal of one day adopting
out 1,000 pets in a single year. At
the time this goal was set we were
adopting out about 400 pets a year.
With a solid marketing and business
plan our goal has been reached.
If you would like to adopt an
animal from the shelter, stop by
during regular business hours,
Monday-Friday, 9 AM - 5 PM. We are
closed from 12:00 until 1:30 PM for
lunch and shelter clean-up.
Adoption fees are $15.00 plus
$50.00 for spay or neuter.
