The Animal Control Specialist/Shelter Manager has been working with the community to educate citizens on the importance of spaying, neutering and vaccinating pets. The Manager also continues to educate the public on the importance of leash laws and animal ordinances. Additionally, she has developed a program that has been taken to the schools to educate our young citizens. With the addition of a part time Shelter Worker we anticipate even more community interaction and education.
TO ADOPT A PET SEE www.petfinder.com. Every adoption is appreciated. Volunteers are also needed for foster homes for animals waiting for adoption. The City requires licenses for all dogs. All dogs must have current rabies vaccinations prior to receiving a license. Licenses can be purchased at the City Office, see Administrative Services Consolidated Fee Schedule for additional animal fees. Animal Services makes a major contribution to the health, safety, and general cleanliness of the City by controlling the City’s animal population. Several times a year Ivins City sponsors a low-cost spay and neuter clinic called “The Big Fix”. The Big Fix is a mobile operating room that travels throughout the state offering low cost spay, neutering, and vaccinations.
