Animal Shelter

Mission Statement
The shelter is a public service organization responsible for protecting animal owners, non-owners and domestic animals aboard the base. It accomplishes its mission through the vigorous enforcement of base regulations concerning the ownership of domestic animals. The shelter also strives to offer humane education and to control the pet population on the base by enforcing housing regulations in cooperation with the Base Housing Office.

The shelter provides many services while accomplishing its mission. It also protects animals from abuse and neglect, rescues sick or injured animals, and places qualified animals in the adoption program.


Adoption Information
The adoption process is customer friendly. We ask that the whole family come to the shelter and interact with the animal. If the family is adopting a dog and currently own another dog, we ask that they bring their animal with them and we will do a dog-to-dog interaction. If an adoption match is found, the animals are ready to go to their new homes that day.
