About the Jeffersonville Animal Shelter

The Jeffersonville Animal Shelter is owned and operated by the City of Jeffersonville, but provides animal shelter services (not animal control, however) to other areas of Clark County — including Borden, Charlestown, Clarksville, Sellersburg, Utica and unincorporated areas of Clark County — through a series of interlocal agreements.

Within Jeffersonville, the Jeffersonville Animal Shelter & Animal Control enforces Indiana Code (IC 15-20 Animal Control and IC 15-21 Commercial Dog Breeder) and local ordinances (2005-OR-045 and 2006-OR-014) relating to animals within the city. The agency assists law enforcement in the enforcement of state criminal law relating to animals under Indiana Code 35-46-3.
