Animal Shelter Information

It is the mission of the Logan City Police Department Animal Control (LCPDAC), to provide safe, effective and humane care to domestic animals within the Logan City Limits.  To accomplish this mission, the LCPDAC has built a temporary holding facility in accordance with Utah Animal Welfare Act. 

Currently when a stray dog is taken into custody by LCPDAC it is transported to the temporary shelter where it is housed in a temperature and air-controlled environment.  Dogs are attended to hourly by the Animal Control staff and supervisors.  Dogs are fed, watered and monitored every day while in the shelter.  Each kennel is equipped with a bed and blanket which are off the ground.

LCPDAC works very hard to reunite lost animals with their respective owners.  The staff utilizes information systems and an extensive Facebook platform to find owners of lost animals. In the event an owner cannot be located after 5 business days, Animal Control places dogs up for adoption or rescue. Significant measures are taken to ensure the dogs are being fostered or adopted by responsible pet owners or reputable rescue shelters.  LCPDAC provides this NO-KILL SHELTER at no additional cost to the tax payer.

Currently the LCPDAC division has no protocol to store stray or feral cats. Most of this is due to space requirements.  LCPDAC will still respond on stray cat calls and scan the animal for a microchip. If a microchip is located, LCPDAC will assist complainants in finding the owner of the cat. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Sgt. Carter at (435) 716-9498.

If you have found a stray dog or are missing a pet please call Dispatch at 435-753-7555 for Animal Control services.
