To educate the citizens of Jackson County about animal control and animal welfare; to protect human and animal health and safety; to increase responsible pet ownership, reduce the numbers of unwanted pets, and to work towards the reduced need for our services.
We are proud professionals serving the people and animals of Jackson County. Animal Care and Control assumes a unique position in the community. We must combine the activities of law enforcement which protects people and their interests, public health responsibilities that protects people from the dangers and diseases of animals, and humane and animal welfare roles which protects animals.
A time when Jackson County neighborhoods will be safe from the dangers and nuisances of irresponsible pet ownership. The day no animal will suffer due to neglect, abuse, or ignorance. And when every pet born will be assured of a caring home.
