CMPD Animal Care & Control is at critical capacity. There are very few kennels available for incoming dogs.
If you’ve been thinking of adopting a dog, now is a very good time! The shelter is at 8315 Byrum Drive
During the month of March, 2023, all adoption fees for dogs are waived when a financial donation is made to support shelter programs.
Another way to help relieve the crowding in the shelter is to take a shelter dog on a staycation. Taking a dog home with you for a few days can help free a kennel for another dog, and it’s a welcome break for the pup too! Not to mention, it gives you a chance to get to know the dog in a more comfortable setting, if you’re thinking of adopting.
