Animal Control

To comply with shelter in place guidelines and in an effort to encourage social distancing, the Valdez Animal Shelter will remain closed to the public until further notice.  Should you require pet food or other emergent supplies for your pets, we are taking telephone orders Wednesday through Saturday from 11am to 5pm.  We will schedule curbside pickup to help keep you and your furry friends healthy.  Should you have adoption or pet related questions, please contact us during the above days and times as well.

Our Mission

Provide Outstanding Service while placing Animal Welfare and Safety as our Top Priority.  This will be accomplished by partnering with our Support Organizations, Volunteers, and Community.
