Who We Are

The Baxter County Animal Control facility opened in July 2006. Under Arkansas law, animals must be kept for five (5) business days. Thereafter, they may be euthanized. Extremely sick or injured animals may be put down sooner, so they do not suffer. If you think your animal may have been picked up, please do not delay! Call Baxter County Animal Control Facility immediately at (870) 481-5822.

Animals are listed by their intake number. Breeds and estimated ages are given, but opinions differ on breed, breed mix, and age, so please look at all animals listed if your companion animal is missing. Locations of pick up are given, if available, and a photo will be posted whenever possible.


Local animal rescue groups are making every effort to save as many of the animals picked up by Baxter County Animal Control as possible. The animal loving citizens of Baxter County thank these groups for their assistance. The Animal Rescue Site $100,000 Shelter+ Challenge with lasts from April 13 through July 26, 2009.
