The Department of Animal Services is responsible for enforcing the animal control ordinance, apprehending stray and nuisance animals, resolving animal complaints, and ensuring that Maumelle's pet owners abide by local and state animal laws.
Animal Services staff maintains the shelter facility and grounds. They are also involved in promoting citizen volunteerism as a means to encourage positive public relations. Click here to report a concern to Animal Services.
Two notable achievements as a result of increased volunteer help have been the facilitation of the Dog Park and the implementation of Arkansas' first shelter-based spay/neuter program for adoptable stray and abandoned animals.
The new facility will have more kennels, a cattery, and an adoption center! These amenities are being added to accommodate the growing needs of the animals in our community.
The Department maintains professional relations with local, county, and state law enforcement agencies as well as with veterinarians and other animal care and control agencies throughout the state and country.
Animal Services collects city license fees and deals with animals at large and nuisance animals. A license fee of $30.00 is required for unsterilized dogs or cats and $5.00 for sterilized dogs or cats. City License must be renewed on a yearly basis.

Maumelle’s Animal Shelter was invited to participate in a nationwide adoption event. It was a rare opportunity to have the North Shore Animal League America’s 2013 Tour for Life van come to Maumelle and pick up our adoptable animals to travel to the event in Conway, assisted by MFOA and one of our very own City of Maumelle Animal Shelter employees - JoJo. Tour of Life is the world’s largest pet adoption initiative aimed at stressing the importance of shelter adoptions.
