What is Flagler Animal Services?

  • The Flagler Humane Society contracts with Flagler County, the City of Bunnell and Flagler Beach to provide a kinder, gentler animal control with an emphasis on education rather than punitive.
  • Our highly skilled and trained Animal Control Officers assist pet owners, often times providing dog houses, collars, transportation for pets, and basic veterinary care. They will perform return-to-owners in the field if the owners can be located.
  • We also provide emergency on call services for injured or sick animals. This includes wildlife. We respond to these calls 24 hours a day, seven days a week by our officers through the Flagler Sheriff’s dispatching.
  • Officers perform neglect and cruelty investigations if the situation warrants. Animals may be confiscated with permanent custody and prosecution of the abuser sought through the court system.
