Pahrump Animal Shelter
The Pahrump Animal Shelter Contractor has given notice of termination of operation.Susan Cronin of Tail’s End, the Contractor for the Pahrump Animal Shelter, will cease operations at the Shelter at 5pm on June 30. The difficulty of running a municipal animal shelter has exhausted her and her staff. We wish them good luck and rest.
Effective at 5pm on June 30, 2015, the Pahrump Animal Shelter will be closed. A contingency care plan will be put into place for the care of animals being held on behalf of the courts. All other animals will be sent to other facilities that will manage, care, and adopt them.
Animal Control is NOT affected by this change. Animal Control operations will be unchanged by the Shelter closure. Running-at-large and abandoned animals will continue to be taken to the Shelter for the mandated three day hold. After three days, these animals will be sent to other facilities for proper care and adoption.
Anyone with a lost or missing animal may request an appointment to visit the Shelter by calling 775-751-6315. This number is staffed Monday through Friday, 8am – 4pm. After hours calls will go to voicemail. An animal Control Officer will return the call when they return to duty.
