Lost a dog?  When we find strays we will post them on the Animal Shelter's Facebook page, please visit


The Animal Control department is staffed by 1 Animal Control Officer and 2 Adoption Specialists.

They protect stray, injured, abused and unwanted animals on a daily basis, in addition to helping the public deal with problems caused by animals.

The officers protect the town by overseeing rabies vaccination (a public health risk) through an extensive licensing program that generates thousands of dollars in revenues.
