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.
The Greenbelt Animal Control is the only municipality in Prince George's County to have and operate their own shelter and adoption program.
Every effort is made to place adoptable animals with appropriate adoptive homes. Adoptable animals can be visited at any time by appointment.
Open Visitations are Wednesdays from 4pm-7pm and on Saturdays from 9am-12pm. Please call 301-474-6124. You may also make an appointment by calling 240-553-7811 or use the "Book Now" button on the Animal Shelter Facebook page.
