Davis County Animal Care and Control is excited to set the citizens of Davis County and their pets as the highest priority by becoming a Socially Conscious Animal Welfare Organization™.
We look forward to promoting Socially Conscious Animal Sheltering, one of the main facets of the Socially Conscious Animal Community Model, in our practices at our shelter and in the field.
Thanks to our compassionate community, Animal Care of Davis County has achieved one of the highest placement rates for homeless pets in the country. In fiscal year 2019 alone, 4,271 pets were adopted, return-to-field with TNR, reunited, or transferred to placement partners.
We are a pre-emptive care organization.
We have no set time limit for how long a pet can remain in our care. We use veterinary services, behavior programs, foster programs, special adoption programs, transfer programs and placement partners to give as many pets as possible a second chance at a happy life in a new home.
We strive to do the right thing for every animal we receive, always keeping in mind the needs of the animal and the animal’s quality of life. In some cases, relieving an animal’s suffering may lead to euthanasia. At no time do we take the ending of a pet’s life lightly. Our staff devotes itself, just as a loving owner or veterinarian would, to treating each pet as a unique living being that deserves respect, care and love. We do not euthanize healthy animals, nor do we use euthanasia as a form of population control. As long as an animal is not suffering, we will give it the time it takes to find a new, loving home.
We know that to reduce the number of homeless pets entering our doors, we must focus on preventive measures. In our shelters, we microchip and spay/neuter the pets in our care and those that qualify as community cats.. In the community, we offer vaccination services to pets in Davis County, and work in conjunction with law enforcement to stop neglect and mistreatment of animals and educate pet owners on responsible pet ownership.
To better reach and impact our community, Animal Care of Davis County is proud to partner with private shelters, rescue groups and other animal-service providers committed to saving pets and fostering responsible pet ownership and regular veterinary care. By coming together as a community, we are able to place as many shelter and rescue animals as possible into loving homes within the areas we serve.
