We appreciate your support for the animals as they wait for their new families.
The Kent County Animal Shelter (KCAS), a division of the Kent County Health Department, is the public safety
enforcement agency responsible for animal control in Kent County. Effective animal control protects the
animal population from abuse and other health risks associated with humans, and protects the human
disease and injury associated with animals.
The Animal Shelter is Kent County's animal control authority and is an excellent source of information about
care, animal control regulations, and other animal-related community resources. KCAS staff can also answer
questions about exotic pets, rabies in non-domestic animals, or refer you to agencies that deal with
animals, and breeding.
