  • Enforce City ordinances directly related to animals
  • Respond to animal concerns within the City
  • Provide for the care and welfare of strays and wildlife as needed; and 
  • Educate the public on proper animal care and ownership.

To contact an Animal Protection Officer, please call the Henderson Animal Center between the hours of 8am - 5pm, and please leave a voicemail message if necessary.
