3/18/2019 -  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.
