BE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR FURRY FRIENDS!

4/9/2018 -  Hello! Just wanted you to be informed about Polk County Animal Control. The City of Bondurant wants to encourage all pet owners to keep track of their furry friends. If a call is made to PCAC and the pet's owner is determined there are fees incurred. When you pick up your pet a fee is collected and once the city is billed for services rendered another billing is sent to the pet owner. This is not ideal, but it's the pet owners responsibility to keep their pet under control. Please keep this in mind for the future.
