Update from Mesa County Animal Services
Mesa County Animal Services (MCAS) staff continues to provide critical services to residents and the animals in our community. Shelter and community enforcement operations continue while operating under COVID-19 guidelines.
Animal Services is responding to calls for service on a priority basis, as we had before the pandemic. Our officers are wearing face masks when responding to in-person service calls.
We ask residents to please wear masks when visiting the Animal Services Facility, 971A Coffman Road in Whitewater. We highly encourage masks to help keep our staff and those visiting the shelter healthy.
Additionally, Animal Services recommends adoption visits to be scheduled by appointment. Animals currently available for adoption can be viewed on our website at https://pets.mesacounty.us/adopt-pet-shelter.
Please help us keep our staff safe and healthy so they can continue to provide critical services to the community and to our shelter animals.
In other news, on Monday, June 1, we began our Leash Your Pet Education and Enforcement Month. Our officers will be traveling through our community parks with a new emphasis on Canyon View and Las Colonias Parks. Please remember dogs at city or county parks are required to be on a leash (10 feet in length or less).
As a reminder, dry dog food, canned dog and cat food, and non-clumping cat litter donations can be made during shelter hours and are VERY much appreciated!
MCAS staff is available by phone at 970-242-4646 and by email AC.firstname.lastname@example.org during the days and hours listed below. For frequently asked questions, visit our website (www.mesacounty.us/animal services).
