This week is National Animal Care and Control Appreciation Week. We’d like to recognize the hard-working staff at the #SVPolice Nancy J. Brua Animal Care Center.
These dedicated professionals handle a wide variety of responsibilities. On any given day, the animal control officers may respond to reports of loose animals, barking dogs, or dog bites. On top of these responsibilities they care for impounded animals, clean kennels, and investigate animal cruelty cases.
Behind the scenes, these employees spend countless hours planning special adoption events to ensure animals find forever homes and hosting spay/neuter clinics.
In 2019, the city animal control staff responded to 3,813 calls for service, saw 12,688 visitors at the shelter, and issued 2,684 dog licenses. A total of 1,631 animals were impounded at the shelter in 2019. In addition to regular business hours throughout the week, the ACO staff hosted 19 special adoption events in the community to help find forever homes for these animals.
A big shout out to the staff at the Nancy J. Brua Animal Care center and the numerous volunteers who help their mission!
