Animal Control is part of a statewide organization known as the North Carolina Animal-Rabies Control Association. This association promotes a quality work environment and the professional development of its members through effective training and leadership.
Some of our services include handling calls for:
Possible rabid animals
Cruelty and abandonment cases
Stray animals running loose (Dogs, Cats, Livestock)
A major responsibility of an Animal Control Officer is to keep the public educated about a number of important issues. These include rabies and rabies control, the leash laws in Rowan county - it's purpose and why we enforce it, information about why pets need to be spayed/neutered and the proper care of animals.
Many animals come into the Rowan County Animal Shelter everyday, all of which are hoping to be located by their previous owner or to be adopted into their new forever home. Please consider providing a loving home for a homeless animal in need. To check out what animals are available please visit "Adopt Me".
