The City of Wichita is accepting applications for an Animal Control Advisory Board, recently approved by the Wichita City Council.
The citizen advisory board will review existing animal control regulations; make recommendations for changes; seek constructive solutions to the concerns of community members regarding animal control regulations; and assist in providing education to the community.
Board membership will be comprised of seven at-large citizens. Preference will be given to applicants who are licensed veterinarians and/or a member of a certified local animal rescue group. A Wichita Police Department Animal Control Officer will be appointed as a non-voting secretary for the board.

The Animal Control Division oversees animal control, rabies control, and leash law enforcement services. The division operates the only full-service, public-sector animal shelter in Sedgwick County and provides animal sheltering to all of Sedgwick County. Support services are also provided to area veterinarian clinics.
