The mission of Navajo County Animal Control is to provide a compassionate, timely, and effective response to domestic animal situations within the unincorporated areas of Navajo County on non-tribal lands, to ensure the safety of all citizens and animal populations through consistent enforcement of state laws and local ordinances relating to the humane treatment and control of animals.
We envision a time when no animal will suffer abuse, neglect, or lack a loving home, and our citizens are educated on the importance of pet population control, disease prevention, and responsible pet ownership.
