Animal Control


The City of Blytheville Animal Control Office comes under the supervision of the Blytheville Police Department. The responsibilities of Animal Control are to perform all the tasks necessary to run and maintain a sanitary animal shelter. They also feed and water all the animals at the shelter, administer medical care, and clean all cages. The Animal Control Officer also patrols the city streets retrieving stray, neglected, and injured animals.

Once the animals arrive at the shelter, they are given proper identification and paperwork. If the animals are in good health, they can be adopted by loving families. The Animal Shelter is proud to give anyone in need of a pet a loving animal to call their very own. The Blytheville Animal Shelter is responsible for promoting public health and safety for the citizens by temporarily sheltering and providing humane disposition of unwanted or lost animals. We promote animal welfare so that pet ownership is a pleasure for owners without becoming a burden to the community.


The Shelter is located at 2530 Arizona Street and is open for adopting or reclaiming pets from 1:00 PM to 4:30 PM Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. If you would like to contact the Animal Control Officer please call 870-824-0006.


If you have an emergency such as a dog bite or dog attack in progress call 911. Citizens should contact local exterminators for rodents, pests, or reptiles.
