Animal Control

Destry Merchant

Our animal control officer, Destry Merchant, handles nearly 2,000 cases in a year, ranging from strays to animal abuse. She picks up countless sick and/or injured animals each year; some running loose (like a moose) or injured when hit by a motor vehicle, others when pet owners call to have an animal picked up.

Our officer also issues citations to pet owners who fail to properly care for their pets, who fail to immunize and/or license their animals, or who allow their pets to roam freely through the city.

We don’t keep animals in a City Shelter. All strays that are picked up are taken to a county-wide shelter. If you are looking for your lost animal, or if you need to license your dog, you may get information by calling (801) 851-4080 or visiting the South Utah Valley Animal Shelter at 582 West 3000 North, Spanish Fork.

Springville City’s Animal Control is doing a Pet Licensing drawing! You can win a prize by simply licensing your favorite furry friend. With courteous donations from Smith’s, Petco, Poochie Doo’s Grooming, and Mountain West Animal Hospital, there is a prize for every best friend! From a Petco’s dog starter bag, a basket filled with goodies, a local dog grooming service, to a Halloween costume for your pet. You can get your license by going into the police department or by doing it online.

Pet License Drawing

In order to win you *must* license your pet 09/04-10/04. Current licenses will not be subject to enter. Rabies and vaccinations must be current to license your pet. If you choose to come into the police station you will need to provide proof of vaccinations in order to receive your license. Any licensing done online also needs proof of vaccinations in order for the license to be valid.

* Failure to provide proof of vaccinations and any invalid licenses will not be entered in for the drawing. * Every license will be reviewed for authentication before a winner is selected!
