Simply put, it is a way to help people and animals live together in harmony. This is in line with our Mission: The mission of the Cumberland County Animal Services Department is to protect our citizens by active enforcement of state and local laws, provide for the humane sheltering and outcome of stray and unwanted animals, and promote responsible pet ownership. The primary objective of Animal Services employees is to provide excellent service to the citizens, while dedicating themselves to improving the welfare of animals and humans.
The Cumberland County Animal Services Department always has a wide variety of dogs, cats and other domesticated animals ready to be adopted. Anyone 18 years old or older with a valid form of identification is eligible to adopt a pet. To find your perfect pet, you, your family and even your pets can visit the facility during adoption hours to view the pets available. You can also use the bonding rooms or outside play area to ensure the perfect match! For animals at the Cumberland County Animal Shelter, responsible pet owners can make a difference by saving those animals that have a lot of life and love left to give. The Cumberland County Animal Services operates a shelter not a permanent care facility. Our programs are sparsely funded. We rely on the citizens of Cumberland County to adopt as many of these healthy animals as possible.
