Animal Services Unit
Due to recent updates related to COVID-19, we are modifying our hours to 8:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.
We want to keep our team safe by limiting the number of employees in the building at one time. As we have been operating, you can call during this time frame to schedule an appointment if you are looking to adopt or need to reclaim your animal. Stay safe everyone and adopt a pet!
