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.
Animal Control provides enforcement of animal related state statutes and all ordinances under Title 6 of the Nye County Code as it pertains to animal welfare, public health and safety, rabies control, quarantine, animal cruelty investigations, barking dogs, and animals-at-large.
On weekends with limited staff available, please be prepared when you call to leave your message on our voice mail system with a telephone number where you can be contacted. An Animal Control Officer will call you back as quickly as possible.
If you are requesting that an Animal Control Officer be dispatched to a location, you must
provide a street address
for the location.
Tonopah and surrounding area residents are encouraged to contact the Animal Control dispatch line Monday through Friday at (775) 751-6315 to have an officer dispatched to address their animal related concerns.
For Urgent after-hours matters, that are life threatening to human or animal, please call 911 or contact the Nye County Sheriff's Office at 751-7000.
It's a fact: Every time a person is born in the United States so are 15 dogs and 45 cats, too many for the number of available homes.
