Enabling/Regulating Authority
R-15-165:  Creating an Animal Services Advisory Board

Background Discussion
  • The Animal Services Advisory Board (ASAB) held their first meeting with the new membership on March 21, 2016.
  • Since that time, the ASAB studied issues brought forth by the County Commissioners, Animal Services, animal welfare groups, and individual citizens.
  • The ASAB is a working Board and each member chose a specific policy area to research and report.  The Board then developed an encompassing report with recommendations to present to the Board of County Commissioners.
  • The ASAB will be presenting on the work they have researched over the last year.  The Report includes four issues to address and present:
    1. Funds for Low Income Spay/Neuter
    2. Mandatory Spay/Neuter
    3. Animal Abuser Registry
    4. Pet Store Puppy Sales
  • Details are provided in the attached ASAB report.
