The purpose of Animal Control is to enforce city animal ordinances and educate the public regarding proper pet ownership. There are a variety of services that Animal Control provides for the Shawnee community, rescuing sick or inured animals, controlling stray animals and responding to dangerous animals roaming at large, removing dead animals, licensing, along with investigating animal cruelty and abuse, complaints of animal noise, unsanitary conditions and abandonment. One of the most important aspects of Animal Control is responding to dog bites. Animals that bite are found, quarantined, and placed under observation for the threat of rabies.

ARC of Shawnee
ARC, or Animal Rescue Center of Shawnee is an organization hosted by the Shawnee Police Dept. When Mr. Thomas, Administrator of Support Services, arrived in May of 2007, he saw a need to bring together all of the citizens, professionals, and groups working towards improving animal control and welfare issues. A board has been formed and meets every 4th Monday at 6pm in the City Hall Commission Chambers. These are open meetings and everyone is invited to attend.
