BJC Animal Control Services has a longstanding commitment to responsible citizenship and to supporting the communities in which we operate. Through the BJC Community Outreach Program, we seek to improve the quality of life for citizens and animals by encouraging actions of a responsible pet owner and raising awareness for the need of humane treatment of animals. Our program consists of two major components:
- Education – BJC Animal Control targets school children and the adult general public through speaker presentations by BJC Animal Control volunteers and education officers. Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
- Bite prevention
- Recognizing aggressive behavior
- Stray animals and owned animals
- Benefits of spay/neuter
- How to have happier pets
- Animal control laws and ordinances
If your school or group is interested in having a BJC professional as a guest speaker, please contact our facility. A full listing of BJC’s programs and videos can be viewed here.
- Outreach – BJC visits various Birmingham-Jefferson County neighborhoods distributing materials, participates in career fairs, gives onsite facility tours and recruits volunteers.
BJC is committed to educating current and future community members through our outreach program. For more information, please contact us directly at 205.591.6522.
