Animal Control Mission
- To give shelter to the displaced and abandoned.
- To give safety to the abused and neglected.
- To educate the community on the importance of responsible pet ownership and care.
The City Of Lordsburg Animal Control Department believes that all domestic animals deserve to be treated with respect and integrity. We will represent the animals with honesty and compassion. We will work with the community, rescue organizations and foster homes on behalf of the animals to give them a second chance at finding loving forever homes.
The City Of Lordsburg Animal Control Department strives to promote public awareness and provide education to the community concerning the importance of spaying/neutering to prevent overpopulation. We will utilize the newest technology available to reunite lost pets with owners, to identify breeds and characteristics, to advertise the availability of adoptable pets and to continue the education of ourselves and the public.
The City Of Lordsburg Animal Control Department will work to strengthen our relationships with city and county governments and to be responsive to changing community needs. We will be readily accessible in a crisis and be an informational resource. We will promote key animal issues by increasing our visibility in the community, participating in and supporting local events and causes.
The City Of Lordsburg Animal Control Department will fulfill these commitments by fostering a professional and compassionate staff and volunteer base through training and continuing education.
