About the Department


Iredell County Animal Services and Control provides a wide variety of services intended  to promote responsible pet ownership, protect the public from diseased and dangerous animals, and to treat all citizens and animals fairly and compassionately. In addition to the enforcement of state and local animal control laws, we meet our goals through public education, a commitment to positive outcomes, and by offering special programs and services.  We take constant measurements of the effectiveness of our program, and make targeted changes to continue to provide the community the best quality service we can provide.


Animal Shelter Services


Iredell County also operates an animal shelter where animals can be adopted, surrendered, and reclaimed by the public. Iredell County Animal Services and Control also offers rabies vaccinations, microchip identification, and subsidizes spay/neuter surgeries for qualifying pet owners.
