City of Glenwood Arkansas Animal Control

"Working together towards a better home for our pets."


About Us

We may be a small town operation, but we have big intentions.
The Glenwood Animal Control is a city funded animal shelter.

We provide animal control services to the citizens of Glenwood.
We are responsible for the impounding of stray or lost animals,
enforcing local and state ordinances, and administering our animal adoption program.


Why Spay and Neuter

Approximately 56% of dogs and 71% of cats are euthanized each year.
Our goal is to reduce this number through adoptions and
a spay and neuter program.
In every community, there are homeless animals.

As a whole In the U.S. there are an estimated
6-8 million homeless
animals entering animal shelters every year.
About half of these animals are adopted and tragically the
other half are euthanized.
These are healthy, sweet pets who would have made great companions.

Millions of pet deaths each year are a needless tragedy.
By spaying and neutering
your pets, you can be an important part
of the solution.
Contact your local veterinarian today and be sure to let your friends
and family know that
they should do the same.
