Animal Care of Davis County is committed to promoting responsible pet ownership and compassionate animal care by fulfilling three goals: To serve and educate our community, to find homes for our homeless pets, and to support public safety
We are a leading adoption organization
We are a collaborative organization
We are a no-suffering organization
We are a preventative animal care facility
Animal Care of Davis County is excited to place the citizens of our community and their pets as the highest priority by becoming a Socially Conscious Animal Welfare Organization™.
We look forward to promoting Socially Conscious Animal Sheltering, one of the main facets of the Socially Conscious Animal Community Model, in our practices at our shelter and in the field.
Thanks to our compassionate community, Animal Care of Davis County has achieved one of the highest placement rates for homeless pets in the country. In fiscal year 2019 alone, 4,271 pets were adopted, return-to-field with TNR, reunited, or transferred to placement partners.
We are a pre-emptive care organization.
We have no set time limit for how long a pet can remain in our care. We use veterinary services, behavior programs, foster programs, special adoption programs, transfer programs and placement partners to give as many pets as possible a second chance at a happy life in a new home.
We strive to do the right thing for every animal in our care, always keeping in mind the needs of the animal and their quality of life. In some cases, relieving an animal’s suffering may lead to euthanasia. At no time do we take the ending of a pet’s life lightly. Our staff devotes itself, just as a loving owner or veterinarian would, to treating each pet as a unique living being that deserves respect, care, and love. We do not euthanize healthy animals, nor do we use euthanasia as a form of population control. As long as an animal is not suffering, we will give it the time it takes to find a new, loving home.
We know that to reduce the number of homeless pets entering our doors, we must focus on preventative measures. In our shelter, we microchip and spay/neuter the animals in our care and those that qualify as community cats. In the community, we offer vaccination services to pets in Davis County, and work in conjunction with law enforcement to stop cruelty, neglect, and mistreatment of animals and educate pet owners on responsible pet ownership.
To better reach and impact our community, Animal Care of Davis County is proud to partner with private shelters, rescue groups, and other animal service providers committed to saving pets, fostering responsible pet ownership, and promoting regular veterinary care. By working together, we're able to place as many animals as possible into loving homes within the community.
