As we have previously reported, Animal Care and Protective Services (ACPS) continues to experience overcrowding in the animal shelter. This level of overcrowding exceeds the shelter’s capacity for care and must be addressed to improve conditions for the animals, as well as the staff and volunteers working tirelessly to care for them. That’s why beginning Tuesday, August 16, ACPS will temporarily require appointments for the intake of all animals in non-emergency situations. In response to nationwide overcrowding, this move is recommended and supported by the National Animal Care and Control Association, and is being implemented in shelters across the country.
