Animal Services

                  Helping to Build a Better Community.


The Animal Services Program with the City of Fayetteville, Arkansas, is a part of the City's Community Services Division and provides a variety of essential animal services to Fayetteville. Animal Services works to assure a community with a low rate of animal nuisance problems and a high rate of animals returned to their homes or natural environments or adopted to loving homes through our City Animal Shelter services. In the past year, we placed over 2,700 homeless pets in new homes.

This Division's primary objectives are to educate the public to be responsible animal owners; to place animals through adoption into responsible, caring homes; run the City of Fayetteville Animal Shelter; return lost animals to their owners; provide animal-control services for Fayetteville; inspect and enforce animal code violations; and reduce the number of animals that must be humanely euthanized.

The Animal Services program with the City of Fayetteville also includes enforcement of the Arkansas Rabies Control Act and city animal ordinances, registration of animals through a mandatory microchip program, providing 24-hour emergency service for animals, and providing veterinary care for City Animal Shelter animals and those animals picked up by Animal Control Officers that are injured or sick.
