Animal Control

Springdale Animal Control is responsible for enforcing the municipal ordinances and state laws involving animals within the City of Springdale. When calling to report an incident, please have as much information as possible so we can best help. Our officers respond to a variety of calls and complaints regarding animal issues. Concerns about dogs at large, barking dogs, animal cruelty investigations/welfare checks, injured animals, vicious animals, and other animal related issues should be reported immediately to Springdale Dispatch.

We Do Not Pick Up Owned Animals for Surrender


Please exhaust all options before choosing to surrender your pet to the shelter and do not wait until the last minute. Please call the shelter at (479)750-8166, if you live within the city limits of Springdale, as you must make an appointment to bring your pet to the shelter to be surrendered. There is no charge to surrender a spayed/neutered pet. Owners of animals that are not altered will be asked to pay their surgery fee, which varies based on the size and sex of the animal.
