The North Platte Animal Shelter is located at 1402 North Sycamore. It is under the supervision of Lt. Steve Reeves. Here you can find pets of all kinds in need of a loving home. This division employs four personnel – one Shelter Attendant, one Animal Control Supervisor, and two Animal Control Officers. If you have an animal problem or need assistance call (308) 535-6780. After hours contact the North Platte Police Department at (308) 535-6789.
The North Platte Animal Control Officers patrol the city streets and are responsible for enforcing all city ordinances pertaining to animal control. They handle vicious dogs, loose animals, return lost pets and dispose of animals that have been killed on city streets. They also provide traps (during suitable weather) to secure unwanted pests that hide beneath houses and in garages. In addition, they are sometimes called upon to transport lost and stolen bicycles, and to provide advice to our citizens that can prevent wildlife from becoming a nuisance.
