The animal control facility at 65 Sports Complex Road was completed in August of 2011. Larger pens and improved quarantine capabilities provided significant advantages to the city efforts in animal control with the opening of the new facility. You can meet the Animal Control Officer at the facility after making an appointment by calling 431-3122.
During 2007 the Animal Control Officer patrolled over 3000 miles and picked up 305 dogs, 135 cats and 24 wild animals. Of these, 200 dogs were adopted or returned to the owner and 66 cats were either adopted or returned to owner. He also removed 63 dead animals from the city.
If you have lost a dog, please contact the shelter as soon as possible. Our primary goal is to reunite dogs with their owners, however dogs will only be held for seven (7) days, including weekends and holidays. To claim a dog, the owner must pay all fees at the time of pickup. The City assumes no liability or responsibility for an animal received in this facility, other than to provide humane care for the duration of custody.
Both the Humane Society and the ASPCA offer guidelines for pet care. Missouri law requires that pets and other domestic animals in the state receive consistently humane treatment. The city requires a kennel license for households with more than four cats or dogs.
