The Moore Animal Control Division is responsible for promoting public health and safety, for temporarily sheltering and providing humane disposition of unwanted or lost animals, and for promoting animal welfare so that pet ownership is a pleasure for owners without becoming a burden to the community.
Although adopted pets are removed from our listings daily, there is still a chance a pet you see here may find a home before you arrive. But there are always plenty more! Come and visit the new shelter and meet all the pets who need a home.
Things to consider when selecting a pet.
A dog or a cat?
Dogs and cats have very different personalities and temperaments. Cats are more independent than dogs but also need the same active care.
Every breed has its own characteristics. For instance, you may prefer a pet with short hair. Learn about the behavior and physical characteristics of the breed you're considering.
Do you have enough room?
Large dogs generally don't do well in small apartments or places without a backyard. Select a pet that "fits" your home.
Does your lifestyle accommodate a pet?
While owning a pet is a lot of fun, it is also a responsibility that lasts many years. Be sure you can provide proper care before adopting a pet.
If you need help selecting the right type of pet, have questions or want more information, talk to your veterinarian or an Animal Control employee.
