Mesa County Animal Services changes operations due to COVID-19

Local News


MESA COUNTY, Colo. — Due to COVID-19 guidelines, Mesa County Animal Services is asking residents to only come to the shelter for “essential business” or animal-related emergencies. Only one family member is allowed
to attend to such business matters.

Additionally, due to travel restrictions, out-of-county or out-of-state animal adoptions are suspended until further notice. Local adoptions will be done by appointment only, as there are animals available.

Field officers will only be responding to emergency situations that include agency assistance
requests, animal bites, reports of aggressive animals, certain animal welfare checks, and certain
injured animals.

MCAS staff is available both by phone (970-242-4646) and by email
(AC.dispatch@mesacounty.us) each day during the hours listed below. Additionally, our website
(www.mesacounty.us/animal services) can be very helpful before your call for frequently asked
questions.
