Prescott Valley Police Department Animal Control has added new holding kennels for animals taken into custody.

The four new kennels may be divided to hold up to eight dogs safely and separately before transport to the Humane Society is available. This allows for Animal Control Officers to be back on patrol and available to the community with other issues.

The kennels are equipped with heating and cooling as dogs may be held up to 72 hours to allow for the owner location/reunion. This will help to minimize trauma to the animals.

These kennels are a welcome addition to the Prescott Valley Police Department Animal Control Unit.

Construction of the climate-controlled kennels was about $28,000. The Prescott Valley Police Foundation, which helps the department with non-budgeted and other items, is accepting donations to defray the cost of the project. Those who would like to donate can send a check to the Prescott Valley Police Foundation, P. O. Box 27532, Prescott Valley, AZ 86312. NOTE: Please specify “Kennels” on your check so your donation goes directly to the kennels. You may also drop a donation at the Prescott Valley Police Department lobby, 7601 E. Skoog Blvd., Prescott Valley.
