Animal Shelter
The Animal Shelter offers a temporary home for cats and dogs who are lost, stray or unwanted. These pets can be adopted by the public for a small fee. Ads run in the local media to display the cats and dogs available for adoption.

Staff at the Council Bluffs Animal Shelter can direct you to the appropriate kennel, answer your questions, license your dog or cat, and fill out lost/found reports. The shelter also offers pet cremations and micro-chipping services. Micro-chipping provides an undisputable means of identifying your pet.

Animal Control Officers are also on duty to enforce animal control laws and rules and regulations, pick up strays and unlicensed animals, investigate nuisance, animal cruelty and complaint calls, locate and quarantine animals that have bitten a human or other animal, issue verbal or written warnings and citations, set cage traps for animals, vaccinate animals, offer euthanasia services, provide public education programs and inspect catteries and kennels.

Donations are always accepted at the Animal Shelter. Another method of providing additional support to the animals is by purchasing an item from our "wish list". For more information contact Galen Barrett at 712-328-4656.
