General Animal Control and Shelter Operation Information

The Animal Control Division prides itself on being ethical and humane in its treatment of animals, including providing positive reinforcement training techniques. The City of Greenbelt uses two veterinarian practices to assist us in providing care and treatment of animals. 

Greenbelt Animal Control operates a no kill for convenience organization. Every effort is made to place adoptable animals with appropriate adoptive homes. Adoptable animals can be visited at any time by appointment.

Adoption Rules

  • All animals that are adopted will be spayed or neutered if they are over six months old
  • All animals are given age appropriate vaccinations and immunizations
  • Animals receive medical treatment as appropriate. Every effort is made to identify and disclose all pre-existing medical and behavioral conditions prior to adoption
