Who We Are

The City of Washington Animal Control & Adoption Facility was opened on May 3, 1993 as a department of the City of Washington, Indiana. It is funded by the City of Washington and it's 3 full time staff members are employees of the City. There is a office manager, assistant office manager, and a head animal control officer. Our primary purpose is to remove stray and unwanted animals from the streets and properties of the City of Washington and try to adopt them to caring, responsible owners. We deal with everything having to do with animals within the city limits of Washington, Indiana, at large animals, nuisance wildlife, injured animals, enforce city animal ordinances, cruelty complaints, rescue, etc. We accept animals from Daviess County which pays an annual fee for the service. Being a municipal shelter, we cannot refuse to accept an animal from the City of Washington, we cannot say we are full.
