COVID-19 Resources for Animal Control Officers


The resources above are provided solely to assist ACOs in deciding what policies and procedures are best for the communities they serve. TACA does not endorse any one particular group's information or recommendations over another.  TACA believes that in all animal-related issues, no one policy statement can be applicable to the unique challenges each community faces and this is particularly true for the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. TACA believes it is best for local jurisdictions to make operational decisions based on what is believed to be best for the staff, their residents, and the animals in their care.  If we can be of any assistance in this process, please contact any of our Board Members and we will be happy to do our best to help in this process.
