Mission Statement

Evansville Animal Care & Control LogoThe Evansville Animal Care & Control Shelter is dedicated to promoting citizen and pet safety, promotion of responsible pet ownership and the reduction of animal overpopulation.  

This mission is accomplished through investigation, intervention and education as well as the enforcement of the City Ordinance.  Our commitment is to ensure the superior quality of our services and to respond to the changing needs of our community.

The operation of the Animal Care & Control Shelter is under the supervision of the Department of Transportation & Services.

The Animal Control and Education Commission members are appointed by the mayor, with approval by the common council, to serve as a governing body in the issuing of permits and ruling in animal cases complying with Section H of the Animal Control Ordinance 6.05.
