Animal Control

City Animal Control    Location: 255 W. College Street     Phone: 870-698-2424

Batesville’s Animal Control Facility located at 255 W. College Street. Our Animal Control Officer, Ross Nelson or Assistant Animal Control Officer Christina Brogdon would love to show you around our facility and assist you in adopting an animal. Phone 698-2424.

New office hours begining April 19, 2022, we will be open Monday thru Friday from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.  We are closed on Saturdays and Sundays. In case of an emergency, please call 911.

We are very proud of our animal control facility. We have several dogs and cats for adoption at any given time.

Batesville has an animal control ordinance that requires all animals inside the city limits be licensed with the city.   We have new, upgraded pet tags that have QR codes on the back.  If your pet were to get loose, anyone with a smart phone could snap a picture of the code and gain access to the pet’s owner information that is given to us at the time of license.  This could help lost pets return home quicker.  The ordinance also prohibits animals running at large. For more information on pet adoption or the city’s animal control ordinance, call 698-2424.

Like us on FaceBook at City of Batesville Animal Control to see some of our animals that are up for adoption.
