The Animal Shelter Advisory Committee plays a vital role in supporting the City’s mission by planning, building, and maintaining our Animal Shelter services. The City believes that smart policy and programs start with the community. Each member of the Animal Shelter Advisory Committee is a member and an integral part of our community. That is why we seek a diversity of voices in order to better understand the people we serve and their concerns. Together, this committee's insights help influence decisions, ensure those decisions are equitable, and create better projects and policies for the overall health and safety of the public. The committee meets three times a year or as additionally needed.
