The Edmond Animal Shelter will be closed to the public on Saturdays November 20, 2021, through January 8, 2022. This temporary closure comes on the heels of the recent Animal Shelter Expansion. During this time, the Animal Services Unit will work to adjust personnel schedules and train new staff to meet the level of service the citizens of Edmond have come to expect, and the facility and care the animals in the shelter deserve. This temporary change does not affect Animal Services field operations.
The Edmond Animal Services Unit is a component of the Edmond Police Department’s Special Services Division.
The Animal Services Unit is responsible for responding to calls for service within the community for issues involving animals –
both wild and domestic.
Animal Services is also responsible for the enforcement of municipal and state laws concerning the treatment of animals; the management of the City’s animal shelter; the humane treatment and care of animals in the shelter; as well as striving to reunite lost animals with their families and find new homes for the adoptable animals at the shelter.
