The primary mission of the Animal Control Division is to serve the public in matters where animals are:
Working With Police & Municipal Code
For other issues involving animals we are requested to address, our policy is to put people with concerns in touch with agencies or organizations that can better meet their needs. We also work closely with the Southaven Police Department
and the Municipal Code Enforcement
Office if they receive a call and animals are involved.
We do take cases to Southaven Municipal Court when necessary to obligate owners to respond to correcting violations or to remove animals from a neglectful owner’s care or other inappropriate situation.
We Care About the Animals in Southaven
Our most desired mission is to put healthy, adoptable animals in touch with owners who desire to give them a good home and appropriate care.
