The Animal Control Officers provide service to residents of the Town of Paradise. Major emphasis is for the safety of all persons and animals within the Town limits. The Town of Paradise currently has two Animal Control Officers, two part-time kennel assistants and one part-time office assistant. Animal Control enforcement started in 1984. The Town of Paradise is the only animal control agency in the County to maintain its own animal shelter and field operations.
The Shelter has facilities for dogs and cats. You will also find an occasional pot-bellied pig, goat, iguana and sometimes an Emu, to name a few.
Animal Control Services include pet adoptions, bite investigations, cruelty investigations, noise complaints, stray dogs, injured animals, livestock or wildlife problems, and rabies control. The Animal Control Officers also patrol problem areas in the Town, as well as providing educational programs for schools and organizations. The Officers are responsible for enforcement of local and state ordinances regarding animals.

WEST NILE VIRUS
WNV is transmitted to people and animals by infected mosquitoes. Only certain species of mosquitoes carry the virus and very few mosquitoes are actually infected. A mosquito first acquires the infection by feeding on a bird with virus in its blood. The virus lives in the mosquito and is transmitted to a new host through the mosquito’s saliva when the insect bites a person or animal. The virus is most prevalent from May to October when mosquitoes are most abundant. For more info go to westnilevirus.com or call 1-877-968-2473
