The Daphne Police Department employs two full-time and one part-time civilian Animal Control Officers (ACOs).
ACO's are responsible for responding to animal-related complaints, investigating animal cruelty cases, reports of rabid animals & animal bites. The Animal Control Officers also enforce the city's leash law & animal control ordinances regulating dogs & cats. In addition, they capture stray & lost animals and issue citations.
In addition to ACOs, the shelter has a staff member to oversee adoptions and volunteer services.
Volunteers consist of members of the community that assist in socialization and care of the shelter animals. Daphne Animal Shelter works closely with other animal service organizations such as The Haven, Baldwin Animal Rescue Center (BARC) and other local rescue groups.
