Animal Advisory Committee

The Animal Advisory Committee was formed in fall 2014 to address new state animal laws (especially MGL 140 [2012]) and some findings by the Massachusetts Department of Animal Resources. The charge to the committee included reviewing how Rehoboth can best organize animal services, recommending policies for the shelter, recommending a feral cat policy, and recommending a specific scope of services for the ACO, Field Driver, and Animal Inspector roles and any specific policies or guidelines required. The Committee has five regular members and two alternates (the alternate appointments are presenty vacant); the Animal Control Officer participates but does not vote.
