Animal Services

Animal Control helps keep Big Spring and Howard County citizens safe by providing pet care education and services. These programs work to reduce the number of unwanted strays animals in the city, minimize the threat of diseases such as rabies, and prevent injuries caused by animals.  
The Animal Control division of the Big Spring Police Department employs four Animal Control Officers that respond to calls for animal services seven days a week, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  Only emergency calls are handled after 5 p.m.  The officers, along with the Shelter Attendant, are tasked with maintaining our animal shelter, working to seek adoptions of housed animals, and solving animal related problems in our community.
