How Are We funded?Animal Control and the Shelter operations depend upon fees and charges generated by our programs. These fees include License fees, shelter related charges, donations, and penalties for violations. In the past County General Fund supplemented the balance of budget needs, however, this support has been reduced to cover only a small percentage of our budget needs. Animal Control is now faced with operating primarily within the revenue generated by the department. It takes hard work, hours of balancing budgets, and dedicated staff to manage any Animal Shelter or Control Program. We are working to reduce the need for our services through education and prevention. We are reaching out to the community to make needed differences for pets and the citizens of our County.
