Animal Control Board


Established in 1979, the Huntington Cabell Wayne Animal Control Shelter is governed by the Animal Control Board. In August of 2018, the Board appointed Courtney Proctor Cross as the shelter’s Executive Director. The shelter is proud to have the support of our Board, our local rescue group partners, the community, as well as the Petco Foundation. The shelter has a lifesaving rate of 96% for animals that enter the facility.
