Educational Animal Topics


Staying Informed
Do you know what it takes to be a good pet owner? Do you know what the City and State laws are for keeping animals? It is Animal Control's goal to help educate the public about animals in our community. Having a community that is informed about animal topics helps us all.

National Statistics
The National Veterinary Medicine Association states as of 2012, 68% of the United States population owns at least one pet. Of the 68%, 36.5% are canine owners, 30.4% are feline owners (two cats on average per residence), with the remainder being small mammals, birds, fish, horses, and reptiles.
